The project will have a meaningful impact in a technological, economic, scientific and social context.
In terms of technological impact the project will create highly efficient, affordable in-wheel and on-board electric motors for different vehicle segments, which demonstrate above 20 to 25% energy loss reduction along driving cycles. In addition, EM technologies providing cost reduction 5 to 6 €/kW and lower as well as decrease in rare magnets use >20% (for IWMs) and in total rare earth content >60% (for OBMs) which will have an effect in the economic context.
New validated research methodologies on virtual sensing in electric powertrain applications, LCA/LCC, smart EM control within e-corner/e-axle frameworks impact the scientific consequences of this project. Finally, EM-TECH will have a social impact regarding an increased acceptance of electric vehicles due to increase performance impacting/contributing to a more sustainable transportation, improvement of vehicle efficiency and therefore a reduction of CO2 and emissions.
