This course introduces the students to the different design aspects of electric drives used in automotive applications, comprising both high power density high speed traction and small mass produced auxiliary drives. Since the target audience comprises students from different degree programmes, the course first reviews basics of electromagnetic power conversion principles and design principles of PM based machines. The discussion of the electric drives themselves comprises the various facets of their design as part of a complex system, such as operating requirements, configurations, material choices, parasitic effects and their mitigation, electric and thermal stress, as well as manufacturing related questions, notably as they affect the design of the mass produced auxiliary drives.
