报告简介

Perceived as one of the most promising means of future transport, Electric vehicles (EVs) are currently gaining wider acceptance.  However, there are challenges in relation to the impact of charging on the grid and the techniques of charging. Thus, both grid integration and charging techniques of EVs have become one of the main focuses of current research. EVs can be charged either by wired or wireless means and, the latter, based primarily on inductively coupled wireless power transfer (WPT) technology, is becoming increasingly popular being convenient, safe, and ideal for both stationary and dynamic (while moving) EV charging.  This seminar presents the trends and latest advances in wireless grid integration of EVs, highlighting the challenges and the impact of EV charging on the grid. The seminar also discusses the bi-directional Wireless Power Transfer (BD-WPT) systems that have been proposed for V2X applications.

报告人简介

Udaya K. Madawala graduated with a B.Sc. (Electrical Engineering) (Hons) degree from The University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka in 1987, and received his PhD (Power Electronics) from The University of Auckland, New Zealand in 1993 as a Commonwealth Doctoral Scholar.  At the completion of his PhD, he was employed by Fisher & Paykel Ltd, New Zealand, as a Research and Development Engineer to develop new technologies for motor drives.  In 1997 he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Auckland and, at present as a Full Professor, he focuses on a number of power electronics projects related to bi-directional wireless EV charging systems for V2X applications.

Udaya is a Fellow of the IEEE and a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Power Electronic Society (PELS), and has over 30 years of both industry and research experience in the fields of power electronics and energy. He has served both the IEEE Power Electronics and Industrial Electronics Societies in numerous roles, relating to editorial, advisory, conference, technical committees and chapter activities. Currently, Udaya is an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics, and a member of both the Administrative Committee and Membership Development Committee of the IEEE Power Electronics Society.  He was the General Chair of the 2nd IEEE Southern Power Electronics Conference (SPEC)- 2016, held in New Zealand, and is also the Chair of SPEC Steering Committee. Udaya, who has over 300 journal and conference publications, holds several patents related to wireless power transfer (WPT) and power converters, and is a consultant to industry.
