NEW MOTOR TECHNOLOGIES FOR A MORE EFFICIENT ELECTRIC VEHICLE

16/05/2017
 

MCIA Innovation Electronics (MCIA UPC) has collaborated with SEAT Technical Center in the conception, design, modelling and validation of electric traction motors based on new technologies of synchronous reluctance. Tests on the motor prototype, manufactured by the company Mavilor, confirm the potential of this technology for use in the interurban electric vehicles market. The technology provides a more economic motor: costs are cut due to the use of classic rare earth magnets, and levels of power density and robustness that are currently found on the market are maintained, with greater efficiency. This new technology is enabling the mass development of electric vehicles.
