CDT in Power Electronics for Sustainable Electric Propulsion

The universities of Nottingham and Newcastle are delivering an EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Power Electronics for Sustainable Electric Propulsion.

It will train a new generation of power electronics specialists to meet the future demands of society and industry for clean, electric propulsion systems. The CDT will also  benefit from the involvement of more than 20 industrial partners.

“We aim to create a new school of thinking amongst engineers and scientists, capable of leading the transformation from fossil fuel transport to sustainable and environmentally-friendly electric transport.”

Wireless drone project supported by CPE tests the waters

Researchers from the Imperial College London’s Wireless Power Lab have successfully tested their wirelessly charged drone in a new environment.

In 2016, the team demonstrated a highly efficient method for wirelessly transferring power to a flying drone based on high frequency inductive power transfer. Their latest development is to test the drone’s ability to recharge over the sea.
