Master Thesis: Benchmarking and Simulation of Automotive E-motors

Here you find the details for the internship named "Master Thesis: Benchmarking and Simulation of Automotive E-motors" in the company TREMEC.

Name: Master Thesis: Benchmarking and Simulation of Automotive E-motors
Company: TREMEC

As we celebrate this year 60 years of engineering excellence and innovation, Tremec stands proud as a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of precision transmission systems.

We're embarking on an ambitious project comparing two game-changing simulation tools: the open-source powerhouse Pyleecan and the industry-renowned MotorCAD. Why? Because the future of EVs is in smarter, more efficient electric motors, and we need bright minds like yours to help shape it.

Passionate about technology, electric machines and the future of automotive? This is your chance to work on high-tech e-drive solutions!

About the project:

In recent years, the global goal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions has pushed the automotive industry to transition from ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) vehicles to EV’s (Electric Vehicles). Even though the function of the powertrain (providing power to the wheels) remains the same, the involved technology is completely different. As much as for ICE vehicles, key factors for an EV in the high-performance segment continue to be performance and driving range. These translate directly into Emotor requirements in terms of: efficiency, torque and speed capability. The different approaches of OEMs to tackle these challenging requirements resulted in a broad range of Emotors with different stator and rotor topologies.

What You'll Do:

Pyleecan vs. MotorCAD Showdown: You'll dive hands-on into developing a Pyleecan model for a specific motor and benchmark it against MotorCAD results. It’s your chance to see which tool scales the heights of accuracy and efficiency. Think of it as your personal tech showdown!

E-Motor Analysis Extravaganza: After mastering the tools, you'll model various commercial EV motors in Pyleecan. This isn't just about simulations; it's about uncovering the secrets behind the design choices and functions of today's leading EV manufacturers. From permanent magnet machines to the intrigue of externally excited synchronous and induction machines, you'll get a 360° view of what powers EVs.

Your profile:

You preferably hold a Master Degree in Electromechanics, Electronics or Automotive Engineering

Our offer:

Real Impact: Your findings could influence how future electric motors are designed. We're talking about contributing to greener, more efficient vehicles on our roads.
Cutting-Edge Skills: Master Pyleecan and MotorCAD, tools that are shaping the future of e-drive systems.
Be a TREMEC Innovator: Work alongside a team of experts in a project that's at the forefront of automotive technology.
