We live in a world dependent on electricity and that dependency is only growing. At the same time, there are ambitious global goals to reduce CO2 emissions for core economic sectors such as transportation, electricity generation, transmission and distribution, industrial production, and buildings. As a result, we see faster than ever adoption of new power electronics, power systems, and power management technologies, not only improving energy efficiency and storage, but also enabling the competitive use of sustainable energy sources.
In this joint event, MathWorks, Speedgoat, and the Faculty of Engineering of Mondragon University provide electrification insights together with examples of how Model-Based Design is being used to develop electrical systems. Having identified energy efficiency, renewable energy, and electric transportation as key market drivers for innovation, we focus on the following three growth areas: power systems, power electronics, and battery management systems. We will cover general technological trends and illustrate the benefits of real-time testing with specific applications and live demonstrations.
