Abstract - During the last two decades, power electronics has gained applications in many important areas: energy, transportation, industry, consumer electronics, just to cite the most important, becoming a key enabling technology. Whatever their power level, current and upcoming power electronic converters are complex systems that combine many distinct hardware and software subsystems, which are becoming more and more intelligent and interconnected to meet the announced Internet of Things world, which, without massive use of power electronics devices, remains just a paradigm.
There are many demanding tasks to be fulfilled in power electronics converters, but all of them share three basic requirements: optimization of the energy conversion process, high flexibility and low costs. Multilevel Converters (MLC) are gaining popularity in many areas including Renewable Energy Systems, Distributed Generation, Smart Grids, E-Transportation, Electrical Drives for industry. Their power and voltage level are growing up or going down due to the specific application, demonstrating unusual flexibility even at low power. A distinctive feature of multilevel converters is their capability to reduce voltage and current harmonics. Particularly at high power levels, their modulation patterns are often generated adopting procedures and algorithms consisting of preliminary off-line computations based on complex methods returning large sets of switching angles stored in look up tables and their subsequent real-time application. These approaches require large amounts of memory space, present resolution issues in commutation angles and are not flexible with closed loop operations. Analytical methods, instead, offer significant advances, including the exact problem formulation, easy and effective real-time implementations, selective harmonic elimination or mitigation capabilities, possibility to cascade modulator and outer control loops. The speech after a survey on some recently proposed analytical methods for modulation of MLC will present and discuss some experimental results and implementation issues.
- Fernando Ortenzi: ENEA – STMA Laboratory: “Changing stations and Infrastructure for automotive applications”
- Fernando Ortenzi is a mechanical engineer (2003) and Ph.D in energetics (2008) ; works as a researcher at ENEA Research Centre in the Eco-friendly Vehicles Laboratory (DTE-PCU-STMA) from 2012 and as research fellow in Sapienza University of Rome from 2004. Author of more than 60 technical papers. he participated in many research projects on real word vehicles consumption and emissions, electric vehicles and charging infrastructure.
- Abstract - Over the last few decades have seen a significant increase in the number of for electric vehicles (EVs) for private and public transportation, being used around the world.
This involves the realization of an infrastructure able to supply charging energy for these vehicles according to the type and mission that is carried out.
In the case of Public transport, the high-power demand (up to 600 kW) to the electrical grid, especially when fast and ultra-fast or flash (at the bus-stop) charging are required, play a critical role and consequently, a ground storage should be used in order to mitigate the peak power request.
Not only Li-Ion batteries can be used for this purpose, but also non-conventional (supercapacitors or flywheels) can be applied to level the electrical grid power request.
High specific power storages are also required onboard to accept such high values of power, for example LTO batteries or Supercapacitors, depending to the charging typology chosen.
Due to the increased storage onboard the electric vehicles (up to 60-100 kWh) and the need to reduce the charging time, the charging power is increased also up to 150 kW and more, so the charging infrastructure too requires load leveling, especially where such power is not available.
Also, other technologies are object of interest, like wireless charging, (static and dynamic) where cost, efficiency and electromagnetic emissions play a fundamental role in its diffusion.

- Abstract - Nowadays, electric machines used in automotive applications must be as small as possible and their power density must be increased to the impressionable values, i.e. more than 10 kW/kg. How to achieve this and what a price we must pay for? Through the equations we are going to understand, where the limits for the e-machines improvements are. The electric machines torque production will be presented through different physical points of view, forming the basic operational modes and further on machine geometries and sizes. Understanding the basis of e-machine power conversion principles will lead us to the most promising types of automotive main power train electric machines. The design and evolution of commercially available electric machines will be discussed and what a price the nature must pay for this. The proposal for near future modus operandi in design and implementation of electrical machines will be given, seen by the author.

11.00 – 13.00 Special Event with Industries -
11.00 – 11.30 Prof. Francesco P. Di Teodoro (Politecnico di Torino)- Leonardo: the power of
water and wind
Francesco P. Di Teodoro, PhD, is Full Professor of History of Architecture at the Polytechnic of Turin. He graduated in Architecture in Florence (with S. Di Pasquale) and was a fellow of the Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei. He is an academician of the Accademia Clementina (Bologna) and of the Accademia Raffaello-Urbino, and he is a member of the Commissione Nazionale Vinciana. He deals with philology of historical-architectural texts, and with links between the history of art and the history of science. He is in the scientific committees of many scientific journals on the history of art and architecture; he has organized conferences and exhibitions on Piero della Francesca, Leonardo, and Raphael. He is currently editing all the writings by and for Raphael and the new critical edition of the treatise On motion and measurement of water by Leonardo. He is the author of the most famous art history handbook for the secondary school and for the early years of colleges.
Abstract - The intervention will
focus on Leonardo's notes and drawings about water (rivers,
waves, tides, "floods") and the wind, the two forces of nature
that continually shape the face of the earth. Leonardo's
interest in water is continuous, starting from the early years
in Florence (with observations on the Arno basin), to the time
when he was in the service of Cesare Borgia (observations on
the tides in Piombino), to the French last years (with the
project of a royal palace in Romorantin bathed by the waters
of the Saudre).
