Efficient Lightweight Integrated Traction Solution (ELITS)
PEMC Group members are delighted to be working with colleagues from Cummins and Drive System Design on the ELITS Project, an Innovate-funded project exploring and developing the possibilities of electrical machines in heavy vehicles.
Project members are developing a highly-integrated high-power BEV powertrain for medium-duty vehicles, which doesn't use rare-earth permanent magnets. By realising a disruptive electric machine and transmission topology, the project aims to deliver a step change in the power density by targeting a high-speed solution, developed alongside integrated power electronics for intelligent control.
