Magnets for future generations of electric vehicles

Permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM) are a reference technology for electric vehicle propulsion. However, their large-scale deployment is subject to the constraints associated with magnets: the capacity to obtain resources as well as the environmental challenges related to mining, recycling and refining. In addition, PMSMs often require flux-weakening1 strategies in order to operate at high speeds, which can result in energy losses...

Electrical machines: Design, optimization, control and diagnosis

Like all sectors concerned by electrification, the transport sector requires the design of high-performance, efficient electrical systems that respond to multiple constraints, such as cost and compactness. In this context, optimisation has become an essential step in the design process of these systems, particularly for electrical machines...

Flair Suite™: supporting environmental and industrial gas monitoring

Today, air quality is an issue of major concern when it comes to public health. To protect it, it is necessary to reduce emissions but also monitor global chemical changes taking place in the atmosphere. From the economic and safety points of view, it is also important to monitor industrial gas emissions. It was to tackle these different aspects that IFPEN’s researchers began developing a range of technological solutions, within the context of the Flair Suite™ project.

The 48-volts system: mild hybrid with significant potential

Electrification of the vehicle powertrain is one of the keys to sustainable mobility and hybridization with internal combustion engines is becoming increasingly common. In this context, the “48-volt” mild hybrid system is a low-cost, flexible and easy-to-integrate option, with reduced safety constraints and outstanding performances.
