While ever-improving battery technology draws a lot of the attention when it comes to improving the range of electric vehicles, these machines feature many moving parts that play a role in their overall performance. By reimagining the way power inverters relay the current from the battery to the electric motor, scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Reliability and Microintegration have conjured up a new design they say works much more efficiently, and could improve EV range as much as six percent.Continue ReadingCategory: Automotive, TransportTags: Electric Vehicles, Fraunhofer, Inverter
