Development of high reliability motor drives for next generation propulsion applications

Project description

An interdisciplinary approach to high-performance motor drives for propulsion applications

The EU-funded DORNA project comprises a research and innovation staff exchange network that will tackle technical challenges facing electrified transport. The focus is on the development of high-reliability electric traction drives (drives that use electric power for moving forward). Matching the type of drive to the correct motor in an application is critical for getting the best fit for torque density, power density, fuel efficiency and fault tolerance. Bringing together leading universities and industries, DORNA will take an interdisciplinary approach to the development of high-performance motor drives for next-generation propulsion applications that can operate at high speeds and harsh environments.
