FGLA Colloquium 2020: “Failure Mechanisms and Reliability of Electrical Drive Trains – Power Electronics, Batteries, Drives”

23.09.2020 in Aachen


The FGLA colloquium 2020 is an interdisciplinary platform for industry and university to present and exchange research and development trends on reliable energy conversion and storage systems.

A special focus of this colloquium are the degradation mechanisms and lifetime prediction of state-of-the-art batteries (lithium-ion). This topic is of major importance for the whole value chain: it helps evaluating the cells from production of the energy storages, first life use and system design, as well as second life concepts and life cycle analyses. Trends in aging research, lifetime prediction and the subsequent parameterization of models and adoption of BMS algorithms will be presented within the broader context of battery research in Germany.

The colloquium is organized by the institute of power electronics and electrical drives (ISEA) of RWTH Aachen University and is chaired by Prof. Rik W. De Doncker, Prof. Dirk Uwe Sauer and Prof. Egbert Figgemeier.

A detailed program will be available soon.

Looking forward to welcoming you in Aachen.
Rik W. De Doncker, Dirk Uwe Sauer and Egbert Figgemeier
