Our Meetup series for interested parties presents and discusses current, practice-relevant research topics in the field of future mobility.

Challenges and Benefits of Electric Powertrain Integration
Balancing cost, performance and durability.

Dr. ir. Karel Vergote and Patrick Debal (Punch Powertrain nv)

The current electrification wave of passenger cars is still quite young. This implies that every electric powertrain developer is still looking for an optimal design. At the same time new motor and semi-conductor technology is emerging. Punch Powertrain sees large opportunities in combining these new technologies into a fully integrated powertrain design. At the same time combining low cost, high system efficiency and a robust design poses quite some challenges.
