New Inverter To Boost Electric Vehicle Efficiency

NEW YORK: A team of researchers in the U.S. has developed a new inverter that — despite being smaller and lighter — improves the fuel-efficiency and range of hybrid and electric vehicles.   Electric and hybrid vehicles rely on inverter components, which are made of the semiconductor material silicon, to ensure that enough electricity is conveyed from the battery to the motor during vehicle operation.   Now researchers at the Future Renewable Electric Energy Distribution and Management (FREEDM) Systems Centre at North Carolina State University have developed an inverter using…
