Magnetizable Concrete Structures For High-Efficient Inductive Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer (DWPT) (Electric Vehicles: Everything is Changing. Europe 2017)

Dr Mauricio Esguerra, CEO & Co-Founder

Presentation Summary

DWPT is predestined to be the charging technology for electrical and autonomous vehicles. Most challenging aspect is maximizing the power transfer between primary and secondary coils thanks to magnetic materials to focus the field while minimizing stray fields. Structured magnetizable concretes offer the best performing and most competitive solution.
