Simulation and Development of a new Drive system and its Control Method for Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM)

The proposed research project is to develop and implement a motor drive based on new semiconductor technologies such SiCMOS and GaN. This motor drive will be used in eVox bikes developed and commercialized by Procycle. The objective is to increasing the operating voltage in the system from 100V to 250V. This high voltage device will improve substantially the efficiency of the system by decreasing the losses in the electrical machine used in the bike. This improved performance will help the company to stay in head of this very competitive market.
