SCAPE Project

Logo SCAPE - Deep Concept

SCAPE (SWITCHING-CELL-ARRAY-BASED POWER ELECTRONICS CONVERSION FOR FUTURE ELECTRIC VEHICLES) brings together 9 innovation-driven partners in a 4-year EU-funded endeavour to revolutionise the design and implementation of power converters for next generation electric vehicles. The ambitious project sets out to revolutionise the design of power converters for electric vehicles by building and validating a novel, standardisable, and modular design and architecture for the EVs’ powertrain coupled with an integration of advanced control systems. Moving away from traditional approaches in powering e-mobility, SCAPE aims to cater for the lack of standardization on the EV power conversion system designs across different vehicles and contribute both to a cost-reduction in the EV powertrain and to an increased performance of power electronics for NextGen electric vehicles.
