Nanoelectronics for Electric Vehicle Intelligent Failsafe Drive Train
Start date: Apr 1, 2011,
End date: Mar 1, 2014
The overall objective is to develop sustainable drive train topologies including control concepts for inherently safe electric vehicle power-train. The project focuses on significant steps ahead in terms of: 1. Development of smart electrical power-train concepts comprising high efficiency torque dense motors fully integrated with power converters and storage systems for modularity, compactness reliability and low cost.2. Novel electrical machine topologies involving the use of soft magnetic composites and power electronics packaging and cooling systems suitable for in-motor integration. These will allow the implementation of innovative industrial processes for the manufacturing of lightweight low cost electrical drives.3. Innovative drive train architecture and microcontroller concepts capable of achieving intrinsic fail-safe behaviour of the power-train thus enhancing the overall reliability and safety.The project will address the research on Power and high voltage electronics and smart miniaturized systems up to the subsystems, systems and vehicle demonstrators, encompassing the full supply chain of electric drives for EVs.
