Rapid Synthesis of Low-Power Electric Vehicle Powertrain


It is challenging to make electric vehicles more fuel-efficient because the key powertrain components are already highly efficient, and therefore, there is a very narrow headroom for further enhancement. Consequently, the challenges for extended range of electric vehicles end up with deployment of more lighter materials, which directly impacts on the manufacturing and repair costs, and it may make actual cost of ownership very high. Extended driving range of electric vehicles is one of the most demanding requirements of the current and potential electric vehicle owners, but use of a larger-capacity battery pack makes the vehicle curb weight heavier and thus the fuel efficiency worse. In this talk, we introduce a rapid synthesis of electric vehicle powertrain that maximizes the energy efficiency while meeting the drivers’ requirements.
