Mission

 

To pursue excellence in research and technology transfer in EV technology:

1.                 internationally, an authority in the arena of EV technology;

2.                 regionally, a catalyst for collaboration between industries and universities for the promotion of EVs in China and Southeast Asia;

3.                 locally, the prime agent for EV technology transfer and consultancy for Government, utilities and industries.

 

 

Major Achievements

 

1.                 Pioneered the development of ac propulsion systems for EVs.

2.                 Developed 5 EVs - Mark1, Mark2, Mark3, U2001 and EV light.

3.                 Hosted the 10th International Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS-10) in Hong Kong.

4.                 Worked closely with Electric Vehicle Association in Asia Pacific (EVAAP).

5.                 Linked closely with World Electric Vehicle Association (WEVA).

6.                 Defined the concept of EV drives and EV power converters.

7.                 Coordinated the development of EVs in Hong Kong.

8.                 Served EV consultancy in Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan, Japan, and USA.

9.                 Educated over 30 PhD/MPhil research graduates/students serving in both academia and industries in Hong Kong and overseas.

10.            Published over 500 papers in learned journals and conference proceedings, and over 30 technical reports and patents.

 

 

Major Research Contributions

 

1.                 Monograph on EV technology.

2.                 Flux-controllable hybrid-field permanent magnet motor drive for EVs.

3.                 Doubly salient permanent magnet motor drive for EVs.

4.                 Flux-controllable stator-permanent magnet integrated-starter-generator for HEVs.

5.                 Magnetic-geared permanent magnet in-wheel motor drive for EVs.

6.                 Concept of energy hybridization for EVs.

7.                 Neuro-fuzzy network for EV fuel gauge.

8.                 Classification of HEVs.

9.                 Thermoelectric-photovoltaic hybrid energy source system for HEVs.

10.            Energy-efficient technologies for HEVs.
