Eckhard Karden

Eckhard received his diploma in Physics 1995 and his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering 2001 from RWTH Aachen University of Technology with projects on CAE modeling and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy of lead-acid batteries. Having spent two and a half year as senior engineer at ISEA Institute for Power Electronics and Electrical Drives of the same university, he joined Ford Motor Company in the newly established Research and Innovation Centre (RIC) Aachen. He has been focusing on batteries for low-voltage power supply, micro, and mild hybrid applications. As a Technical Specialist, he is working closely with Ford’s global engineering centres and has been involved in the conceptual work, specifications, and component verification plans for the enhanced flooded batteries, battery sensors, and charging strategies that went into Ford’s first generations of micro-hybrid vehicles. He is an active member of German, European, and international standardization working groups for stop/start and micro-hybrid batteries.
