  3. 3. Efficiency Analysis of Drive-train for an Electrified Vehicle

    Author : Ali Rabiei; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Drive cycles; Current vector control; Vehicle applications; Silicon carbide; Power electronics; Energy efficiency; Loss calculation; Electric machines;

    Abstract : In this PhD thesis, various solutions to improve the energy efficiency in the electrical drive-train of an electrified vehicle such as modifications of the propulsioninverter or control of the electric machine, are proposed and their benefits arequantified from an energy efficiency point of view. The efficiency analysis isbased on modeling of a power electronics inverter, an electric machine and a battery in various drive cycles for an electrified vehicle. READ MORE

  4. 4. Energy Efficiency Comparison Between Two-level and Multilevel Inverters for Electric Vehicle Applications

    Author : Oskar Josefsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Electric Vehicle EV ; Drive Cycle; Plug-in Electric Vehicle PEV ; Multilevel Inverter MLI ; Two-level Inverter TLI ; Efficiency.; Integrated Charger;

    Abstract : In order to contribute to the development of energy and cost efficient electric vehicles, a thorough analysis of two different electric converter topologies is performed, considering different drive cycles and different control strategies. In the electric vehicles available on the market today, a high voltage (200−400 V ) battery pack composed of several battery modules is connected to one or more inverters which create AC voltages to the electric propulsion machines.

  5. 5. Design and Assessment of Battery Electric Vehicle Powertrain, with Respect to Performance, Energy Consumption and Electric Motor Thermal Capability

    Author : Emma Grunditz; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : energy consumption; Battery Electric Vehicle; sizing;

    Abstract : In this thesis, various drive cycles, legislative, official real-world and measured, have been studied and characterized based on their speed and acceleration content. Three reference vehicles (a City car, a Highway car and a Sport car) were conceptualized after performance requirements, with data on existing battery electric cars as a frame of reference. READ MORE
