E-motors & controllers for electric traction

Customers developing next-generation electric powertrains face the major challenge of integrating powerful electric e-motors and controllers into environments tightly constrained by weight and space whilst minimising vehicle costs.

An electric drive unit (EDU) that integrates a YASA e-motor and controller together with an FEV designed 2-speed gearbox, clutch and electric actuators in one compact package is shown.  This 2-speed EDU provides high efficiency driving in both urban and highway driving, enabling significant savings in battery capacity and cost over single speed drives.

EDU Concept – specification overview

  • 2-speed powershift EDU with neutral function
  • Maximum EM torque: 500 Nm
  • Maximum axle torque: 6000 Nm
  • Power: 300 kW peak / 150 kW cont. at 700 Volts
  • System weight (total, dry): < 85 kg
  • YASA axial flux electric motor (13.3kW/kg) with coaxial, integrated inverter for highest power density
  • Park-by-wire system
  • Integrated cooling and lubrication circuit for inverter, motor and transmission.
