About this event

Electric vehicle (EV) is one of the major challenges  in this century.  The ban on the sales of  diesel and gasoline cars starting from 2040 in certain European countries  is a starting point.   One of the key issues in EV is the energy storage  that governs the cost and the travelling distance.   Wireless power transfer may replace the present conductive charger to provide highly flexible and safety power conversion.    Super-capacitor  and fuel cells are the other alternatives.   Battery and super-capacitor management system is now so important and is a key management and safety component for batteries or energy storage system.  Serious demand is found in super charging technology, wireless charging, new energy source and Grid to Vehicle.  Fuel cell is also another possible energy storage to work in parallel with the electric vehicle.  The future energy storage could be a combination of various energy storage devices.  

The Speaker
Prof Eric Cheng, Electric Vehicle Laboratory, Department of Electrical Engineering, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

Prof Eric Cheng obtained his BSc and PhD degrees both from the University of Bath in 1987 and 1990 respectively.  Before he joined the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in 1997, he was with Lucas Aerospace, United Kingdom as a Principal Engineer and led a number of power electronics projects.

 He is the electrical designer for the Hong Kong 1st commercial electric vehicle in Hong Kong.  He is also the designer for the 1st charging network in Hong Kong.   He received the numerous awards related to electrical engineering, energy and automotive.   He has published over 300 papers and 7 books.  He has over 100 interviews by media on his research and development. He is now the professor and director of Power Electronics Research Centre of the university.  His research interests are all aspects of power electronics, Power Quality, Renewable energy, Motor drives, Energy Saving, EMI, high speed rail, Electric Vessel, Electric Vehicle and Automotive advanced components.   He is the recipient of the international award in 2016 iCAN Gold Medal for his contribution in  active suspension and Seoul International Invention Fair 2015 Gold prize for his contribution in super-capacitor  to electric vehicles.
