With awards and training. This is how the professorship Nagares Mechatronics has been introduced in its first public event at Polytechnic University of Valencia. The professorship awarded last week its first studies prizes. Two prizes were awarded, each worth 500 euros: best master's dissertation and the best student record, both directed to last year students of UPV Master in Mechatronics Engineering.

Vicente Fuster received the first prize for the best master's dissertation. His study, entitled Energy Regeneration in frequency converters, evaluates the chances of recovering the energy wasted, for example, in elevators working.

On the other side, the student José María Marín won the prize for best student record due to his brilliant academic career. “You must like it; there must be motivation but above all, dedication. That’s it. You must work hours and hours. In short, work, work and work” Marin said at the ceremony.

Training seminars

This presentation was completed with training seminars. Carlos Valera, mechanical engineer expert in simulations, spoke about the “real characterization and thermal and mechanical models simulation” and Alfredo Perez, Project Development director, gave a lecture entitled “Optimization analysis of the use of thermally conductive pastes”.

Finally, Torbjörn Hallberg, analyzed the “IGBT modules thermal study”; Esmoris Anton explained the “mechatronics integration in an electric car loading module” and Francisco Hipólito García talked about the “Soldering feasibility analysis in electronic components.”

Collaboration with Nagares

The professorship was signed in September 2015. It is attached to the School of Design Engineering (ETSID), and the person responsible is Mr Eduardo Garcia Breijo, professor in the Electronic Engineering department and member of the Molecular Recognition Center and Technological Development (IDM).

Nagares is a family business founded in 1971 and located in Motilla Del Palancar (Cuenca), which employs nearly 500 workers. Its annual turnover is over 70 million euros, out of which 18% is reinvested in R & D and equipment. Among its main customers we can find major manufacturers in the automotive sector: Renault, Nissan, Volkswagen, Peugeot, General Motors, Ford, Daimler, BMW, Volvo.

Nagares owns three R & D centers located in Valencia, Valladolid and Motilla Del Palancar and about ten sales offices spread worldwide (from Detroit to Shanghai, including Istanbul, Moscow, Tunisia and Bogota). The company has a specific division dedicated to manufacturing technology for electric vehicles. In fact, the development for electric car components is the big bet of the company: in the last five years the R & D staff working has increased from 30 engineers to 62 engineers currently employed by Nagares.


Nagares together with the Polytechnic University of Valencia have created a professorship to promote mechatronics

E-mail Print PDF
Last Wednesday 8th of September, Polytechnic University of Valencia’s rector, Francisco Mora, and Nagares’ President, Herminio Navalón, signed a partnership agreement which is formalized by the department of Mechatronics Nagares, which will initially run one year. The professorship is attached to the School of Design Engineering (ETSID), and its director is Eduardo García Breijo, from the Department of Electronic Engineering and member of the Center for Molecular Recognition and Technological Development (IDM).

The objective of the professorship is to promote mechatronics in its broadest sense. For this purpose, the agreement provides, among other activities, to convene scholarships and awards to final year projects, promoting internships, organizing days of technical disclosure with some of the world's leading in the field of mechatronics specialists and opening new joint research lines.

Greater knowledge transfer

During the ceremony, Herminio Navalón has declared that “Nagares has been working for over 15 years with various research groups at the Polytechnic University of Valencia and specially with the Institute CMT-Heat Engines. Now we want to go a step further and formalize the relationship between the two entities with the signing of a professorship”.

For its part, Francisco Mora remarks that “for the UPV, this initiative has several interesting aspects. Nagares’ field is closely related to studies of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering offered by the UPV, that will allow performing very specific projects with students, visiting installations, accessing to first-hand information and making business practices directly in the professional environment”.

Relations with the environment

Currently there are more than 30 professorships and company classrooms at the Polytechnic University of Valencia. Thus, the UPV formalizes a qualified, comprehensive and lasting collaboration with companies and institutions to strengthen relations between the university and the socio-economic environment and increasing the range of activities in different fields of knowledge, for both students and teachers.


Una masa crítica necesaria para disparar las ventas de vehículo eléctrico

Juan Diego Navalón, director de Ventas y Marketing de Nagares

El coche eléctrico tiene todavía ciertos inconvenientes que frenan su introducción en el mercado. Estos inconvenientes son la autonomía limitada en comparación al coche habitual (la mayor parte de los usuarios ignoran que el vehículo eléctrico (VE) ya cubre sobradamente la autonomía diaria requerida en un 90% de los casos). El segundo gran stopper es el tiempo de carga en relación con el tiempo de repostaje de los coches actuales y finalmente, el precio, sobre todo por el coste de la batería.

Pero esto no debe ser siempre así. Estamos comparando una tecnología con más de 100 años en evolución y con ventas de más de 80 millones de unidades anuales con otra que lleva unos pocos años queriendo nacer y cuya masa crítica es de apenas 300.000 unidades anuales. A medida que las ventas de coches eléctricos crezcan, su capacidad para mejorar su competitividad y prestaciones se dispararán. Existen estudios que indican que el precio del coche eléctrico será equivalente al de uno de combustión cuando alcance unas ventas de tres millones de unidades en el mundo, contra todavía más de 80 que se venderán de vehículos con propulsión convencional.

A medida que las ventas de coches eléctricos crezcan, su capacidad para mejorar su competitividad y prestaciones se dispararán.

Este potencial lo han entendido muy bien los fabricantes, viendo que cada euro invertido en tecnologías de vehículo eléctrico produce mejoras mucho más significativas que si ese mismo euro hubiese sido invertido en la tecnología de combustión, mucho más madura. Además, las sanciones europeas a los fabricantes a partir de 2019 por la emisión media de CO2 de sus flotas vendidas, les hacen ver que sumar ventas de coches con unas emisiones declaradas de 0 gramos de CO2 por kilómetro es un gran negocio. Esto explica que prácticamente cada fabricante tenga ya en el mercado al menos un modelo VE.

Los Gobiernos deberían igualmente apoyar esta tecnología, sobre todo en Europa. El primer motivo es estratégico/ energético: Aunque no queda claro si un vehículo eléctrico es más o menos eficiente, energéticamente hablando, que un coche de combustión si se hace el cálculo “del pozo a la rueda”, sí que es innegable que el VE permite segmentar la procedencia de la energía que le alimenta. Actualmente, los automóviles solo usan combustible proveniente de petróleo importado a Europa desde países que no siempre son los socios estratégicos preferidos, dejándonos en una posición de debilidad. El segundo motivo es medioambiental.

No sabemos lo limpia que será la energía que haga mover el VE (dependerá del mix energético de cada país), pero es claro que si en una gran ciudad todos los coches fuesen eléctricos, la calidad del aire, donde viven millones de personas, sería infinitamente mejor y, por lo tanto, su calidad de vida.

Resulta difícil pensar como la generación futura, mucho más sensibilizada con los asuntos medioambientales y de salud pública, aceptaría compartir sus calles con coches que hacen ruido y emiten partículas nocivas para los seres vivos. Y esta debería ser la razón por la que los políticos añadiesen más y más incentivos para que las ventas de los VE alcanzaran el volumen necesario para ser competitivos por sí solos.

Habría que preguntarse, particularmente en España, porque hasta el mes de junio de 2015 se han vendido solo 703 coches eléctricos mientras que en Francia se han vendido a esta esa fecha unas 11.000 unidades; así como 8.000 en Alemania, 17.000 en Noruega, 12.000 en Holanda, 12.000 en Reino Unido, 53.000 en Estados Unidos, 42.000 en China y 4.000 en Suecia.
