Dumisani and Martin present their PhD topics

On Wednesday 21st June Dumi and Martin presented their PhD topics at VLBA department (University of Oldenburg).

Dumisani Nyumbeka is a 2nd year PhD student at the Nelson Mandela University in Port Elizabeth. His PhD research focuses on creating a scheduling model for the charging of electric vehicles using photovoltaic (PV) powered smart microgrids. This research is part of larger project that seeks to build a network of charging stations that are publicly accessible to the EV drivers nation-wide, thereby reducing range anxiety.

Martin Smuts is conducting his PhD in the fields of energy efficiency and sustainable mobility. He aims to investigate different techniques to improve the accuracy of range estimation technologies in electric vehicles. This research aims to assist drivers in optimising their driving behaviours to manage the limited battery capacity and charging infrastructure of electric vehicles.
