EVC1000 H2020 PROJECT

EVC1000 project is structured in 5 phases which focus on in-wheel drivetrain layouts, as well as a wheel-centric integrated propulsion system and EV manager.

More specifically, the phases relate to the following aspects:   

  • New components for in-wheel powertrains:

    • Efficient, scalable, reliable, low-cost and production-ready in-wheel motors, suitable for a wide range of torque and power specifications;

    • Dual inverters for in-wheel motor axles based on Silicon Carbide technology. The designs will include detailed consideration and measurement of the electro-magnetic compatibility aspects, as well as the implementation of model-predictive health monitoring techniques of the electronic components.

  • New components for electrified chassis control with in-wheel motors:

    • Brake-by-wire system for seamless brake blending, high regeneration capability and enhanced anti-lock braking system control performance;

    • Electro-magnetic active suspension actuators, targeting increased comfort and electric vehicle efficiency.

  • Controllers for the novel EVC1000 components, exploiting the benefits of functional integration, vehicle connectivity and driving automation for advanced energy management.
