Congratulation to EPFL

EPFLoop - the EPF-Lausanne (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne) Team came 3rd out of 18 in the Hyperloop Pod Competition organized by Elon Musk’s Space X. EPFLoop uses a BRUSA motor and inverter for the competition. The use of the BRUSA inverter was a substantial advantage for the pod, thanks to its recuperation capabilities.

In order to accelerate the development of functional prototypes and encourage student innovation, SpaceX announced the Hyperloop Pod Competition in 2015, which challenges university teams to design and build the best transport Pod.
