Emerging electric motor technologies for the EV market

The presentation will provide an introduction to various types of e-motors (PMSM, inductance, reluctance); a comparison of efficiency at powertrain level, of power request (voltage, current), reliability and stability and efficiency losses based on the type of rotor; a comparison of thermal efficiency (hotspots, fluid conditioning), the usage of dielectric EV fluids and their improvements over water/glycol mix; and will conclude with a brief conclusion of e-motor pros/cons as seen while testing real products, and for which domain (passenger cars, Formula E, etc).
