Electric drives in hybrid vehicles - Transient conditions in electric drive systems and their effects on the performance on the hybrid vehicle

Start date 01/01/2011
End date The project is closed: 31/12/2013
The project is part of a cooperation between the division (Electric Power Engineering), Volvo Cars and the research institute, SP.
 
In this project, transient conditions in electric drive systems for hybrid vehicles are investigated. The objective of this project is to gain knowledge about: possible fault conditions, transient demands and unbalanced operation of a faulty electric machine and converter. Objectives are also to improve the design of converters and electric machines to obtain drive systems with increased fault tolerance and more reliable operation. It is also an incentive, to model electric machines thermally and validate the models against measurements.
