About the Project

Electric vehicle development has been a hot topic around the world. This PhD programme will develop artificial intelligence based computational tools to accelerate electric vehicle drivetrain design and optimization process. In this program, new artificial intelligence methods will be developed and applied in finite element analysis. Topology optimization of electrical motors and power electronics based on the developed computational tools will be carried out to verify the effectiveness of the proposed new solution.
