In my research, I am developing a tool based on computational design methods to automatically optimize the powertrain topology of various electric vehicles. In the end, this tool should assist design engineers in the choice of technology, placement and interconnection of components over different system levels.

Within our work package, we have a close collaboration amongst the different PhD students, since we are all working on a part of the puzzle for optimal vehicle design. Within my research specifically, there is a connection to work package 5 (fast charging), since the charging infrastructure can have a large influence on the onboard charger part of the powertrain architecture.
