Description

Increasing power consumption, CO2 reduction, growing mobility or progressing automation – none of these future megatrends is possible without powerful electric drives. The electrification of the automobile powertrain is considered crucial, as the whole sector is facing difficulties resulting from the substitution of the conventional combustion engine. Besides advancing ideas on the design of powerful electric drives, the organization of the manufacturing processes and systems is of great importance.

The 8th International Electric Drives Production Conference offers an outstanding platform for the exchange of experiences for developers, researchers and potential users.

The focus of the conference is set on the presentation of highly innovative products from various industries as well as manufacturing processes and strategies. The conference will be accompanied by an industrial exhibition, a poster presentation and a social program.

Increasing power consumption, CO2 and NOx reduction, growing mobility and progressing automation – all of these future megatrends are impossible without powerful electric drives. The electrification of the automobile powertrain system is considered crucial, as the whole sector is facing difficulties resulting from the substitution of the complete conventional powertrain. Besides advancing ideas on the design of powerful electric drives, the organization of the manufacturing processes and systems is of utmost importance. The International Electric Drives Production Conference offers an outstanding platform for the exchange of experiences from developers, researchers and potential users. The focus of the conference is set on the presentation of highly innovative products from various industries as well as manufacturing processes and strategies. Additionally there will be an accompanying table top exhibition, pos
