Electric Mobility (Professors Klöffer and König)

Professors Christian Klöffer and Patrick König jointly head the Electric Mobility Competence Center (EMC²) at INES. Together with research assistants and student assistants, the two professors devote themselves to research topics in the field of optimised operation of the electric drive components of electric vehicles. This is done both together with well-known national automotive companies and regional industrial partners as well as within the framework of international research projects funded by the European Union (for more information, see the section on current and completed projects). The research activities are closely interlinked with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in order to offer young researchers the opportunity to do a doctorate.

Currently, the expansion of the existing test capacities for electric drive components of electric and hybrid vehicles is underway. The planned test facility is to have the following technical data:

Electric machine:

    Mechanical power: < 300 kW
    Mechanical speeds: < 20,000 1/min
    Torques: <500 Nm
    AC voltage amplitude: < 500 V
    AC current amplitude: < 800 A

 DC/AC converter:

    DC voltage: < 900 V
    AC current amplitude: < 800 A

Energy storage:

    DC current: < 900 A
    DC voltage: < 900 V
