System Integration of High Voltage Drives


The Low Carbon Vehicle Technology Project held a series of presentations at the Cenex HEVC11 Event that took place in the International Digital Laboratory at Warwick University on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th May 2011.

The key purpose was to raise awareness of the research being carried out on the Project through a series of technical presentations covering 13 of the research and development workstreams.
