Abstract

An EV (Electric Vehicle) will be one of core technologies in the next generation.
The EV is an effective way of meeting future demand for environmental Improvements, also providing driving pleasure. Further progress is expected for power electronics systems of the EV in terms of reducing their size, lowering their cost and increasing their efficiency. To attain these aims, WBG (Wide BandGap) power devices are promising next-generation candidates. In this talk, overview of EV development and expectation for WBG power devices will be presented.
