2nd International VDI conference “EDrive“: Integral Development of Powertrains 

The development of partially and fully electrified powertrains poses a true challenge and requires the ability to take a system-wide view across all areas: Mechanics, Mechatronics, Electrical Engineering.

That’s exactly where the new international conference “EDrive“ comes in. System architects, power train designers and experts for subsystems are invited to share their views on current solutions from research and industry.

Topics covered at the 2 sessions, taking place at the same time, will include:

  • Layout of the electrical engine
  • Integration of semiconductor power modules 
  • Optimisation ideas of the overall system 
  • New concepts on e-axles, hybrid modules and 48-hybrids 
  • Transmission topologies in electrified drives 

The specialist programme is prepared with the support of the programme committee, which is made up of top-flight industry experts:

  •  Dr. Karsten Bennewitz, Volkswagen AG, Wolfsburg
  •  Dr. Andreas Fink, ZF Friedrichshafen, Schweinfurt
  •  Michel Forissier, Valeo, Cergy-Pontoise Cedex
  •  Dr. Rainer Link, GKN ePowertrain, Lohmar
  •  Konstantin Neiss, Daimler AG, Sindelfingen
  • Thomas Pfund, LuK GmbH & Co. KG, Bühl
  • Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Dirk Uwe Sauer, RWTH Aachen
  • Dr. Andreas Schamel, Ford-Werke GmbH, Aachen (Tagungsleitung)
  • Ralf Schmid, Robert Bosch, GmbH, Stuttgart
  • Wolfgang Stephan, hofer AG, Nürtingen
  •  Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Tenberge, Ruhr-Universität Bochum
