(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2019-03)In this paper the occurrence of chaos in the hysteresis-controlled switched reluctance motor (SRM) drive under phase current saturation is examined. An 8/6 pole 4-phase SRM is used as the model for this study. To gain ...
Application of wireless power transfer while EV is in motion can significantly reduce the battery storage capacity. A major challenge in implementation of dynamic wireless power transfer (DWPT) is automatic detection of ...
Optimization of Air-Gap Profile in Interior Permanent-Magnet Synchronous Motors for Torque Ripple Mitigation Interior permanent-magnet synchronous motors (IPMSMs) have been widely used due to their high-efficiency and high-power densities. Minimization of torque pulsation resulting in vibration and acoustic noise is one of the ...
Simultaneous Optimization of Geometry and Firing Angles for In-Wheel Switched Reluctance Motor Drive Interests in using rare-earth free motors such as switched reluctance motors (SRMs) for electric and hybrid electric vehicles continue to gain popularity, owing to their low cost and robustness. Optimal design of an SRM, ...
Online Estimation of Capacity Fade and Power Fade of Lithium-Ion Batteries Based on Input-Output Response Technique Lithium-ion batteries present promising potential in electrified transportation due to their high-power density and long cycle life. However, during the life cycle, lithium-ion batteries are subject to degrading capacity ...
