Description of call
"Next generation electric drivetrains for fully electric vehicles, focussing on high efficiency and low cost"

Developments have already been undertaken in recent years to optimise drivetrain components for fully electric vehicles (FEVs), in particular in terms of efficient use and recovery of energy. However, the next generation of electric drivetrains should be conceived to also take into account design for manufacturing, low weight and material cost.

Proposals should address one or several of the following aspects:

  • Functional system integration of electric machines (e.g. high speed motors) with transmissions, optimisation of energy recovery with the integration of braking systems.
  • Lower cost electric machines through reduced need for rare earth magnets and designs optimised for lower cost manufacturing processes.
  • Integration of power electronics with battery charging functions together with associated control and of wide bandgap semiconductors providing high temperature, high power density, and high frequency capabilities.
  • Modular electric power train components compatible with both full electric and hybrid applications, sub-systems and topologies with enhanced noise, vibration and heat (NVH), reliability, safety and fault tolerance and robustness, fit for mass manufacturing.
