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.
