    The article has presented the electric tilting three-wheel vehicle (ET3WV) developed at the University of Padova, Italy, for urban mobility. It is characterized by an innovative connection between the tilting front module and the nontilting rear module, and by advanced solutions for the electric propulsion system. The design of the mechanical layout, of the traction drives, of the battery, and of the control circuitry of the vehicle were described, and its characteristics and driving performance were reported. Besides excellent performance in terms of acceleration and range, superior lateral stability and good maneuverability were achieved. Further work is mainly addressed to enhance the electric propulsion systems by providing the traction drives with torque control and flux-weakening features, with the latter being helpful for increasing the cruising speed out of the urban areas.

    Evolutionary improvements in silicon (Si) power devices through better device designs, processing techniques, and material quality have led to great advancements in power systems. However, many commercial power devices are now approaching the theoretical performance limits offered by the Si material in terms of the capability to block high voltage, provide low on-state voltage drop, and switch at a high frequency. This article presents the opportunities and challenges in realizing the full potential of SiC power devices. View full abstract»

    Adjustable-speed electric motor/generator drives (ASDs) are used to save electric energy and increase productivity in variable-output work processes of all new and well-established industries such as: digital information gadgets, digital home appliances, automotive and robotics electric actuators, pump compressors, other vehicles, industrial processes, and distributed and renewable energy system electric generators. With power levels that go from less than 1 W to hundreds of megawatts, ASDs have become in the last 20 years a very dynamic worldwide industry/market. The recent advances in electric/magnetic materials, modeling tools, design and fabrication of electric machines for ASDs, corroborated with matched progress in ASD power electronics with power quality control, DSP menu based control, novel sensors and interfacing, field orientation and direct torque control (FOC and DTC), and advanced state observers for motion or current sensorless control, has prompted us to do this selective review. This article selects a few control issues in ASD, such as performance indices, three-phase ac motor control principles, wide constant power speed control, motion-sensorless control of ac drives, variable-speed ac generator control, and linear motor drives control, and discusses their basics, recent progress, and a few directions of ASD research and industrial development for the near future.
