Power Electronics and Electric Machinery Innovations - U.S. GovernmentS Role in Pngv 2000-01-C063
The U.S. Government plays an important role in the Partnership
for a New Generation of Vehicles' (PNGV) electrical and
electronics technologies with a program consisting of high-risk
research and development (R&D) projects. The Department of
Energy (DOE) plays the largest role in supporting these
technologies to specifically address automotive needs.
DOE has three Automotive Integrated Power Module (AIPM)
contractors and two Automotive Electric Motor Drive (AEMD)
contractors working to become viable suppliers for PNGV. Materials
development projects are working to improve materials and devices
needed in automotive motors and drives, such as permanent magnets,
capacitors, sensors, connectors, and thermal management materials.
Advancements in inverters, controls, and motors and generators
conducted at DOE's national laboratories are also
