Summary: This W-ENER session will focus on "Power Electronics Technologies for Electric Mobility". The focus on electric mobility represents a new transport paradigm based on efficient and sustainable mobility. For such objective, power electronics technologies play an essential role and can be contextualized in different purposes to support the full adoption of electric mobility, including on-board and off-board battery charging systems, inductive wireless charging systems, unified traction and charging systems, new topologies with innovative operation modes for supporting the electrical power grid, and innovative solutions for electrified railways. This presentation is framed with the current situation of scientific and technological development for electric mobility applications, showing new operating modes that enable the dynamic integration of electric mobility into the power grids targeting smart grids, where some of the main technologies and power electronics topologies are presented.
