Study of Topologies and Cooling Solutions for a High Power Density, Cost-Effective and Eco-Friendly Motor for Powersports Electric Vehicles.

BRP is a global leader in the world of powersports vehicles, propulsion systems and boats. The company wants to develop electric motors for its future on- and off-road electric vehicles, thus reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of its products.

Powersports electric vehicles require electric motors with high power, but low weight. This type of motors is subject to overheating when delivering the performances required by BRP standards.

This project aims to deeply investigate the heat transfers involved in high performance electric motors. The goal is to determine the motor geometry and characteristics that provide the best compr
