The University of Arkansas says electrical engineering researchers at the school have been awarded $3.9 million from the U.S. Department of Energy for continuing work on the development of a compact and highly efficient silicon-carbide charger for hybrid electric vehicles.

A news release from the university Monday said benefits could extend beyond vehicles into other areas, such as wind and solar power, and could lead to reduced energy consumption.

Alan Mantooth, professor and director of the university’s National Center for Reliable Electric Power Transmission said he was confident the effort would lead to breakthroughs in efficiency, size and weight reduction as well as overall improved vehicle performance.

The program calls for the Arkansas researchers to develop basic semiconductor device models that will enable other researchers to design integrated circuitry.
