About This Special Issue
(DOCEV) Special Issue, concern the design and control of electric vehicles optimizing the power chain performances. The main objective is to develop methodologies of systematic design of electric vehicles (EVs) power chain, reducing the cost and the consumption. These methodologies rest on the choice of the structure and the components of this chain reducing jointly the cost and the consumption of EVs.

Themes:
1. Design of electric motors by finite element and analytical methods.
2. Development of systemic control strategies adapted to sizing methods.
3. Optimizing the performance of electric vehicles.
4. Dependability.
5. Fault tracing and diagnostics.
6. Identification of the electric motors.
7. Electrothermal Characterization of the EVs power chain.
8. Experimental validation of design approaches.

    Abstract: In this paper, we present an analytic model of the whole motor converter taking in account of several systemic and physical constraints. Being couple to a model of the losses of the power chain and to a model of the mass of the motor, this analytic model puts a problem of conjoined optimization of the consumption and the cost of the motor. This pro... Show More

    Abstract: This paper describes the choice and the design of electric vehicles power train structure reducing considerably the energy consumption. Indeed The converter feeding the motor is naturally with IGBTs leading on the one hand to important losses and on the other hand to many control problems. This structure is replaced by another with electromagnetic ... Show More

    Abstract: This paper describes the electric parameters determination for Synchronous Motor with Dual Excitation, using the joined method analytic/finite elements. Indeed several models of mutual and principal inductances and electric motor constant are developed analytically and validated by the finite elements method. These models are fortunately parameteri... Show More
