Advanced Reluctance Motors for Electric Vehicle Applications 

To enable a large scale adoption of EVs, a new generation of electric drive systems is needed to reduce dependency on rare earth materials, while improving energy efficiency, power density and reducing manufacturing/recycling costs. The ARMEVA project aims to develop a new rare-earth-free generation of advanced reluctance motors. 

The main scientific objectives of the ARMEVA project are the development of multiphysics simulation models for advanced reluctance motors, comparative assessment to select optimal motor topology for future EV's and development of an integrated electric drive system. The entire system consisting of control software, power electronics and a physical electric motor will be integrated and validated in a vehicle platform. ARMEVA will use a system based approach using multi-attribute techniques to improve the overall concepts and multi-application, multi-operation analysis to optimize vehicle level efficiency in a wide range of realistic conditions.
