Design Optimization of IPMSM for Electric Vehicle Propulsion

In Terms of NVH Characteristics and Energy Consumption



Eco-friendly vehicular market has been expanding remarkably in accordance with concern for environmental issue and regulation on emission, while propulsion motor has gained its importance as well. Conventional motor design has mostly focused on producing higher torque in compact size owing to space availability in vehicle. However, recent research has started to focus more on NVH (Noise, Vibration, and Harshness) and energy consumption of propulsion motor for user commitment to better driving performance and fuel efficiency. In this presentation, design technology of IPMSM (Interior PM Synchronous Motor), which is regarded as the best candidate for propulsion motor on account of better torque density and wide operating speed, will be addressed to optimize NVH characteristics and energy consumption. In particular, stochastic and deterministic optimization algorithms have been coupled into memetic one for optimal design of IPMSM with the superiority in reliable and faster convergence to design optimum. Meanwhile, torque ripple and electro-magnetic force harmonics are the main sources of noise and vibration, which should be suppressed as design objective throughout optimal design of IPMSM for improving NVH characteristics. Moreover, variety of operating points specified from the vehicle¡¯s running on roads has its own efficiency according to the control strategy, which manifests the statistical energy consumption of motor and fuel efficiency of vehicle after all. Likewise, multi-purposed optimal design of IPMSM to optimize the efficiency map compatible to the best fuel efficiency has been performed with the design example of purposely built IPMSM for electric vehicle propulsion
