Analysis and Optimization of Whine Noise of Light Bus E-axle System 2023-01-1102

This paper investigates the problem of whine in the E-axle (Electric Drive Axle) system during acceleration of a light bus. The problem is identified as motor and reducer whine by the noise spectrum feature analysis method. Under the condition of ensuring motor performance and low cost, the motor whine is solved by optimizing the air tightness and sound insulation of the vehicle. Starting from gear microscopic shaping research, gear manufacturing and assembly process optimization was used to control gear whine. After testing and analysis, the means to effectively solve the E-axle system whine problem. The whine noise is optimized by about 8 dB (A). The results provide key technical support for the smooth production of the vehicle. It has certain guiding significance for the NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) performance design and development of the E-axle system project.
