INTRODUCTORY DAY

5 DECEMBER 2022

Objective

Newcomers and career changers will get an overview of the basics of drive systems and will be updated to the latest level of development. A wide range of drive systems will be presented and the electric
drive concepts are introduced in detail and compared regarding their layout, requirements, characteristics, operation management as well as resulting performance and energy consumption.

In the afternoon the seminar focusses on the basics of Li-ion batteries – the most used energy storage device, on electronics – a component of rising importance, and the power electronics which task it is to
provide the requested energy at the right time at the right place.

The content of the introductory seminar is presented by highly experienced experts, the schedule allows time for your personal questions and an interactive exchange.
