Abstract Linear electric motors designed on the basis of permanent magnets have disadvantage. It is caused by nonlinear distribution of a magnetic flux density around the cylindrical permanent magnet. Therefore, the motors should be designed with the high level reserve power. It lids to increase of mass - dimensional parameters of a motor. In addition, it complicates a control system of an electric drive on base of the linear motor. These disadvantages are eliminated by using, offered by authors, of three-zoned permanent magnetic structures. Using the three zone magnetic structures on basis Nd-Fe-B permanent magnets allows reducing weight - dimensional parameters of the linear motor. In this paper is considered design technique of creation the tree zone magnet structure. As an example, it was designed linear electrical motor (actuator) for diesel speed electronic controller. Prototype electronic speed controller was build and tested.

Abstract This paper presents a reliability study of a directly cooled IGBT module after a test drive of 85,000 Km in a fuel cell electric vehicle, as well as of an indirectly cooled IGBT module after a test drive of 200,000km in a hybrid car on public roads. At the end of the test drive, the inverter units were disassembled and analyzed with regard to the lifetime consumption. First, electrical measurements were carried out and the results were compared with the ones obtained directly after module production (End of Line test). After that, ultrasonic microscopy was performed in order to investigate any delamination in the solder layers. As a third step, an optical inspection was performed to monitor damages in the housing, formation of cracks or degradation of wire bonds. The results show none of the depicted failure modes could be found on the tested power modules after the field test. Obviously, no significant life time consumption could be observed.

Abstract There are variety of motors and generators/alternators being manufactured internationally, for variety of applications. It is a difficult task for the user to identify and select the type of motor /generator/alternator for a specific use, by the designer and ultimately the user is totally unaware of what is bought and why. There is a need to designate the motors and generators. So that by interpretation of the identification nomenclature of the motor or generator, its type can be judged. Whether it is a series motor, an induction motor etc, in case of motors. This will eventually make it easy for the manufacturer, the buyer and the consumer to identify the motor or generator type. So a universally accepted and followed identification nomenclature is required to be developed which will henceforth make dealing in motors and generators simpler for all. It will prove to be useful during troubleshooting.

Abstract In small car segment, as far as hybridization is concerned, the space and safety constraint demands use of lower voltage viz., 48 V as compared to >100-volt-systems used for vehicles in other segments. These systems also have advantage of reduced copper weight due to reduced current. As 12 V systems are replaced by the 48 V systems, the auxiliary 12 V loads would necessitate implementation of a DC-DC converter. Considering the requirements of auxiliary loads that are fed from 12 V battery, the power rating of the DC-DC converter can get considerably high resulting in increased size. Hence, it is advisable to re-design at least some of the 12 V auxiliary systems to 48 V such as the radiator fan motor. This, along with the issues faced in the existing PMDC Motor with regard to efficiency and sizing have generated interest to investigate better alternatives for the motor.

Abstract The control strategy of switched reluctance motor (SRM) in-wheel motor is investigated in order to reduce the influence of torque ripple of SRM on the ride comfort. The nonlinear model of switched reluctance motor (SRM) is established and the variable angle control strategy with optimal switch angles is applied to control SRM. However, the variable angle control strategy can not reduce the torque ripple of SRM significantly. Therefore, some advanced control strategies are developed to improve the ride comfort in electric vehicle. In this paper, the fuzzy proportional integration differential (PID) is developed to improve the torque ripple of SRM in which the fuzzy control idea is utilized to adjust the parameters of proportional integration differential (PID) control online and ensure the adaptive capabilities of the fuzzy proportional integration differential (PID) control to motor driving system.

Abstract As many automotive functions evolve from purely mechanical to electrically-driven, the use of efficient brushless DC motors is becoming prevalent. This paper discusses the design of a BLDC motor controller, including the technical tradeoffs, hardware implementation, and testing results. This design example examines the specific requirements for a compact solution for driving a water pump, but the design methodology and tradeoffs also apply to other motor control applications where efficient control of motor speed is needed. Practical details such as component parameters are discussed to guide designers in identifying the link between critical performance requirements and component selection. The paper includes discussion of circuits which mitigate EMC issues inherent in switching supplies and power stages. Attention is also paid to ancillary design topics such as reverse battery protection, overvoltage due to load dump, thermal issues, and other fault-tolerant considerations.

Abstract This article describes a design method for improving the mechanical efficiency in a small vane pump, which is driven by an electric motor with a battery for a conventional vehicle. An aim of designing is a decrease in friction torque without decreasing the volumetric efficiency. The influence of two important factors concerning the friction torque, i.e. the dimensions of pump parts such as a cam ring, a rotor and a vane, and the coefficient of friction between the cam contour and the vane tip on the mechanical efficiency is clarified in two stages. In the experimental analysis, the coefficient of friction between the vane and the cam contour in the actual pumps is estimated and the influence of the pump-operating conditions such as oil temperature is also investigated. Furthermore, the relationship between the coefficient of friction and the mechanical efficiency is demonstrated.

Abstract A new motor has been developed that combines the goals of greater compactness, increased power and a quiet drive. This motor is an interior permanent magnet synchronous motor (IPM motor) that combines an interior permanent magnet rotor and a stator with concentrated windings. In addition, development of the motor focused on the slot combination, the shape of the magnetic circuits and the control method all designed to reduce motor noise and vibration. An 8-pole rotor, 12-slot stator combination was employed, and a gradually enlarged air gap configuration was used in the magnetic circuits. The gradually enlarged air gap brings the centers of the rotor and the stator out of alignment, changing the curvature, and continually changing the amount of air gap as the rotor rotates. The use of the gradually enlarged air gap brings torque degradation to a minimum, and significantly reduces torque fluctuation and iron loss of rotor and stator.

This SAE Recommended Practice is intended as a guide toward standard practice and is subject to change to keep pace with experience and technical advances. It describes a body of tests which may be used as needed for abuse testing of electric or hybrid electric vehicle batteries to determine the response of such batteries to conditions or events which are beyond their normal operating range. This document is derived from a similar document originally developed by the U.S. Advanced Battery Consortium. (See 2.2.1.)
