La gestion thermique dans la révolution du carbure de silicium, discutée par IDTechEx

Pour les véhicules électriques (VE), l'efficacité est le mot d'ordre. Il existe de nombreuses façons d'améliorer l'efficacité, notamment au sein du groupe propulsion, l'un des domaines clés étant l'électronique de puissance. Parmi ces composants, l'onduleur principal est le plus puissant et offre les meilleures possibilités pour améliorer l'efficacité. L'onduleur principal est chargé de convertir la sortie CC de la batterie en entrée CA pour le moteur électrique. Ces dernières années, nous avons commencé à voir des semi-conducteurs à large bande tels que le carbure de silicium (SiC) adoptés dans les onduleurs des VE pour remplacer les transistors bipolaires à grille isolée en silicium (Si IGBT).

Décarboniser le transport routier : Un rôle de 160 milliards de dollars pour les piles à combustible à hydrogène, selon IDTechEx Research

L'incorporation d'une pile à combustible dans la transmission d'un véhicule électrique, générant de l'électricité à partir d'hydrogène, offre une voie technologique qui permet de réduire de façon critique les émissions d'échappement sur la route tout en surmontant les limites potentielles d'autonomie et de charge des véhicules électriques à batterie (BEV). L'analyse d'IDTechEx dans son nouveau rapport intitulé "Véhicules électriques à pile à combustible 2022-2042" prévoit que la valeur du marché des véhicules routiers à pile à combustible atteindra 160 milliards de dollars en 2042, avec un TCAC de 23,9 % sur la période de prévision de 20 ans.
