Biography:

Faculty of Engineering Profile | Emadi's Research Group

Research involves

Design and optimization of the next generation of cost-effective and smart, energy-efficient electrified vehicles to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve performance.

Research relevance

This research will increase the efficiency, performance, and cost-effectiveness of advanced electrified vehicles, drastically reducing green house gas emissions produced by vehicles.

Getting Smart About Transportation

Conventional vehicles are harmful to humans as well as the environment, and serious changes are needed to reduce dependency on fossil fuels. To address this, engineers worldwide are competing to build the next generation of cost-effective and smart, energy-efficient cars. Plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles are set to become one of the main forms of transportation nationally and globally by 2030.

Internationally recognized for his work in vehicle electrification research, Dr. Ali Emadi is working to improve the efficiency, performance, and cost-effectiveness of electrified power trains, powertrain components, and vehicle energy management systems. He held the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Hybrid Powertrain, and is the Canada Research Chair in Electrified Transportation and Smart Mobility.

Dr. Emadi and his team will continue to build on their previously established framework to develop and optimize electrified power trains and powertrain components including power electronic converters and electric propulsion motors.

A typical electrified vehicle will reduce greenhouse gas emissions significantly compared to its internal combustion counterpart. This research will bring new, energy-efficient, and environmentally friendly solutions to the market faster. This will enable higher performance, lower cost, reduced and zero emission vehicles to be on the roads sooner, and thus help reach Canada’s greenhouse gas emission reduction targets for 2020-2030.
