GRINHELEC: Developing and characterizing a greener insulation for high-voltage cables

In a context where European regulations will eventually require a massive restriction of the use of fluorinated polymers, GRINHELEC (GReen INsulation for High power ELECtrical harnesses) project intends to make possible the use of a bio-sourced insulation in effort to supplant the fluorinated insulators of the cables dedicated for electric propulsion. This project is part[…]

SICRET progress status and what’s next!

The SiCRET (SiC Reliability Evaluation for Transport) project is entering its third and final year of activity. In the last two years, it has established a rich body of expertise and test best practice. To adress what’s next, SiCRET team organizes a half-day workshop at Safran Tech premises (in Paris) on July 4, from 14.00[…]

IRT Saint Exupéry hosted the SAE High Voltage Workshop

On 10th and 11th July, more than 100 people, coming from all around the world, joined together in Toulouse to attend the High Voltage Workshop co-organised with SAE International and hosted by IRT Saint Exupéry. SAE International is a global association of more than 138,000 member engineers and related technical experts in the aerospace, automotive and commercial vehicle industries. Together with industrial members SAE proposes high quality events.[…]

New equipment at the IRT Saint Exupéry – an electric motor test bench

The characterisation platform for the more electrical aircraft domain at IRT Saint Exupéry has been expanded with the arrival of a new electric motor test bench to work in conjunction with hysteresisgraph purchased in 2015. It supports the ‘technology bricks’ sub-domain research into characterising and modelling electromagnetic losses. The idea is to improve the accuracy[…]
