Research and Development for Future

Electric Vehicle Project

Kazuhiro Ohyama, Professor

Development of an electric vehicle with SR motors

SR motors do not use rare earth and is less expensive. In addition, they are robust. Our electric vehicle project is working on the development of an electrical vehicle with SR motors.

SR motor test

Sophisticated designing and control are required

SR motors are less expensive and robust. However, compared with permanent magnetic synchronous motors commercially used in hybrid vehicles, SR motors are inferior in terms of efficiency. Our target is to make SR motors as effective as magnetic synchronous motors by changing designs and control methods of SR motors.
