Schedule At A Glance
High-Performance Rare-Earth Magnet-Free Electric Machine Design
Ayman EL-Refaie, Marquette University
Seungdeog Choi, Mississippi State University
Gianmario Pellegrino, Politecnico di Torino
The ever growing demands for high performance electric propulsion system will require a lot more rare earth magnet than we can currently produce. To meet the 2030 electrification goal, we need 10 times more rare earth materials used in permanent magnet motors. In this panel, we will discuss the reduced or rare earth magnet-free electric machine deisgns from multiple aspects such as materials, machine design, cooling techniques, electromagnetic performance, and power density.

Modern-day prolific energy management systems (EMSs) or supervisory controllers manage more than just distributing driver’s power demands into different onboard power sources in a electrified vehicle. While the fundamental objective of any EMS is to strive for better energy efficiency of the electrified powertrain, versatile modern-day EMSs have been exploring various technologies to make electrified vehicles more attractive to customers, innovative, sustainable, and eco-friendly. A few such technologies are AI-driven, associated with vehicle-to-X communication, telematics, and battery health detection systems. Some of these technologies are on the verge of deployment, while some are in their infancy. This panel will discuss how these technologies are reshaping the market for electrified vehicles and the future scope of improvement in energy efficiency through collaborations among different innovative technologies.

As the application of electric propulsion rapidly expands towards high-power systems such as semi, off-road vehicles, and aircraft, the needs for high-voltage and high-power electric drives are also growing. In this panel, we will discuss high power density electric propulsion system technologies for various electrified transportation system including novel inverter topology, state-of-the-art WBG devices, cooling techniques, and packaging.
Beyond the Motor Shaft: Gearboxes for Electrified Vehicles

Christopher Suhocki, Southwest Research Institute
Since the earliest days of transportation systems there has been a need to match the speed and torque requirements of the wheel with that produced by the powerplant. With an internal combustion engine (ICE) powered vehicle this has been accomplished through the years with a variety of transmission and final drive (axle) options. The electrification of vehicles presents similar challenges, along with the differing torque characteristics of an electric motor vs. an ICE and this panel will discuss some of the options in use and being considered for future applications.
What Is The Role For Hydrogen In Transportation?
Graham Conway, Southwest Research Institute.
Mohammad Fatouraie, Bosch.
Mark Richards, DOE.
Nathan Peters, MAHLE North America.
Ashok Kumar, Cummins.
The global shift towards light-duty plug-in EVs is happing rapidly. In many markets the increase in adoption rate exceeds most analysts forecasts from just two years ago. The light-duty market is relativley easy to electrify and will continue to see year-on-year growth for the forseeable future. As vehicle class size increase so do the challenges facing mass EV adoption. Longer charging times, high purchase price and reduced payload present challenges for many over-the-road long haul applicaitons. Hydrogen has been discussed as a potential solution for the Class 8 applications as well as off-road applications. There are inherent challenges to hydrogen vehicles too, yet the topic has increased in relevance over the last 18 months. The application for hydrogen may be either a fuel-cell or internal combusiton engine. This panel will discuss the areas where hydrogen could work and the steps we need to take to get there.
