One of the earliest international authorities on electric vehicles, C.C. Chan has been at the forefront of developing technologies enabling clean and efficient transportation methods benefiting the environment. Chan has made extraordinary contributions to the theoretical analysis and optimization of electric machines, power electronic devices, converters, special mechanical structures, and cooling systems that meet the special needs of electric vehicles including adaptive decoupling control, electromagnetic and thermal field analysis, hybrid architectures, and energy management. Considered the first comprehensive book on the topic, Chan’s Modern Electric Vehicle Technology provided the fundamentals for modern electric vehicle technology, addressed key issues, and assessed their environmental impact. His recent research in smart charging and vehicle-to-grid systems has gained attention from not only automakers but also power utilities.
An IEEE Fellow, Chan is a professor with the University of Hong Kong’s Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Hong Kong.
