Electric vehicles (EVs) are inevitable future of the automotive industry.Many manufacturers around the world are investing heavily for developing EVs, which is facilitated by a steady increase in prices for petroleum products, the need to reduce harmful emissions from cars, and development of energy storage technologies.
This research service titled, “Battery and Powertrain Technologies for Electric Vehicles,” provides an overview of types of electric motors that are currently used in EVs. Additionally, it presents the challenges, drivers, and adoption scenario for electric drive technologies.
This research study focuses on the latest achievements in the development of battery electric vehicle (BEV) powertrain subsystems, such as energy sources and propulsion, as well as, on multiple technologies that can be implemented for the proper operation of these subsystems.Electric drive technology is considered in more detail.
The types of electric motors that are currently used and could be used in EVs are compared. The various powertrain configurations and their interrelation with different electric motor type and design are also described in this research service.
