Abstract

In this paper the design aspects of an in-wheel electrical machine to be used for traction in electric buses are discussed. The main challenges with the application are the high torque density and cost-minimisation requirements. This paper looks at all the different design aspects of the traction motor required including the electromagnetic design optimisation and thermal management.
