๐ŸŽ‰We can now proudly present the winners of the TAPAS Community Challenge 2018! ๐ŸŽ‰
Congratulations to Team "Wireless Charging" (idea 56). We are really excited for all finalists and a really big thank you to all participants for your interest in this challenge!

We got over 200 submissions! 65 ideas got one or more TAPAS boards, 10 submissions were presentation-ready.
And now we have 5 finalists! YEAH ๐Ÿ˜ƒ The finalist's idea numbers were 40, 56, 68, 212 and 213.
What's next?
We are now preparing the next steps for you, the community. Please stay tuned!
We are working on a forum and a separate webpage. If you have any question please don't hesitate to contact us via email!


High efficiency E-Turbo controller

High speed E-Turbo motors are spinning at very high speeds in the range 100-200Krpm.
Conventional IGBT drivers cannot efficiently produce a sinusoidal output for such high mechanical speeds, even with a low number of poles.
GaN technology will allow to obtain easily aย closer to sinusoidal output due to their superior switching speeds.

An E-Turbo controller using GaN technology will allow greater efficiencies and better motor control in downsized hybrid motors.
