  • Optimal Design of Non-Rare Earth Traction Motors
Phi-Power Presentation on Axial Flux Motors Manufacturing and Application by Michael Lampérth.

Phi-Power Presentation on Axial Flux Motors Manufacturing and Application by Michael Lampérth.

Axial flux motor offer better power and torque than conventional motors. However, they are not widely used due to the lack of manufacturing and design experience in the automotive industry. Find out more about the subject from a past presentation on "Axial Flux Motors Manufacturing and Application" presented by the CEO of Phi-Power, Dr. Michael Lampérth.

Topics covered in the presentation include:

  • Better performance – less material
  • Changing the motor diameter
  • Position of electric motor
  • Manufacturing
  • Pros and cons of Electrical steel and SMC
