BMW Presentation on Advanced E-Motor Technology using 6 Phase Drives

Expand your knowledge within this area, with this exclusive free presentation by Dr. Daniel Glose, Senior Specialist E-Motor Controls at BMW Group in Germany on the topic of: "Simulation environment for electric traction motors and application for 6-phase system layout".

The presentation covers the following:

• DC-Link current distortions can be minimized with increasing number of phases

• Simple Modulation Technique for 6 phase drives is proposed to reduce those distortions

• Doing so, a reduction of DC-Link capacity and hence component costs is achieved

• Results are shown according to dedicated simulation environment for electric drives
