Permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) group

Fields of interest
Control algorithms and power electronics for permanent magnet synchronous machines.
We focus on two fields:

  • traction motors
  • high speed motors (> 40 000 RPM)

We work with
- SiC and IGBT power components, we build our own inverters
- DSP and FPGA control systems

Why SiC components?
SiC components are the new generation of semiconductors for power applications. They have high power density, low losses and allow high switching frequencies.

Why high speed motors?
High speed motors have high power density. A traditional "low speed" motor has power density around 1kg/kW. A high speed motor can have power density 5x higher
