Electrifying for More Sustainable Transportation

The power-to-weight ratio of electrified systems is one of the most critical performance indicators. Reducing the weight of moving parts and the powertrain itself is key to energy efficiency. Especially in transportation applications – cars, bikes, buses, ships, aircraft – weight reduction is one of the main design goals because it influences the available range of the vehicle. For achieving a high-power density, the powertrain must be evaluated in the overall system together with the weight reduction of all other ... Read More

Numerical Analysis for Sizing Electric Vehicle Batteries Considering Energy Drain Power

Raphael Barbosa Carneiro de Lima, Senior Innovation Engineer | Maxion Structural Components

When developing electric vehicles, it is necessary to evaluate more carefully their practical application compared to combustion vehicles. This stems from the crucial requirement for batteries to endure an entire trajectory until the subsequent recharge opportunity arises. Numerous techniques exist for emulating the dissipation of energy, and within our paper, we aim to elucidate one such approach. We employ a widely recognized vehicle dynamic formulation encapsulated within a script, synergistically interfacing with an optimizer. This combination facilitates the generation of ... Read More

Electrifying Actuation Systems​

In addition to e-propulsion, other systems also require actuation – in transportation, as well as in industrial and mobile machinery, manufacturing, or robotics, to name a few. Engineers who design drive systems face several challenges that can only be solved by looking at the big picture. High performance, limited space, complex motions, and often also environmental conditions require a combination of multiple physical principles. Mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electromagnetic and electrical subsystems work together, and their specific characteristics must be taken ... Read More

Electrifying for More Sustainable Transportation

The power-to-weight ratio of electrified systems is one of the most critical performance indicators. Reducing the weight of moving parts and the powertrain itself is key to energy efficiency. Especially in transportation applications – cars, bikes, buses, ships, aircraft – weight reduction is one of the main design goals because it influences the available range of the vehicle. For achieving a high-power density, the powertrain must be evaluated in the overall system together with the weight reduction of all other ... Read More

Numerical Analysis for Sizing Electric Vehicle Batteries Considering Energy Drain Power

Raphael Barbosa Carneiro de Lima, Senior Innovation Engineer | Maxion Structural Components

When developing electric vehicles, it is necessary to evaluate more carefully their practical application compared to combustion vehicles. This stems from the crucial requirement for batteries to endure an entire trajectory until the subsequent recharge opportunity arises. Numerous techniques exist for emulating the dissipation of energy, and within our paper, we aim to elucidate one such approach. We employ a widely recognized vehicle dynamic formulation encapsulated within a script, synergistically interfacing with an optimizer. This combination facilitates the generation of ... Read More
