    Concerning the application of slotless axial-flux PM motor (AFPMs) in electric vehicle drives, this article deals with the development of a 16-pole AFPM prototype which is used in the propulsion system of an electrical scooter. The proposed AFPM prototype has 45 Nm peak torque and 6.8 kg mass of active materials, and it is coupled directly to the scooter's rear wheel. In the following, the authors... View full abstract»

    Inverter-driven synchronous motors are widely used in high-performance variable-speed drive systems. In this article, the effects of machine parameters and the operating characteristics with respect to several types of synchronous motors-which include synchronous reluctance motors, surface permanent magnet synchronous motors, and interior permanent magnet synchronous motors-are examined. The optim... View full abstract»

    Developments in power switching devices have been made toward reducing the conduction drop and improving the switching characteristics, in order to meet the demanding requirements for high efficiency. On the other hand, many efforts have been made to reduce the switching losses. Since bipolar junction transistors (BJTs) have the lowest on-state drops among those existing semiconductor switches wit... View full abstract»

    The generator in use today is the air-cooled claw pole generator. It is highly optimized and has nearly reached its technical limits. However, despite this optimization, the efficiency is not very high. Therefore new kinds of electrical power supplies must be researched. For this, a mechatronic power supply system-consisting of the electric generator with its mechanically accelerated masses and it... View full abstract»
