A variety of difficult operating conditions challenge the long-term performance and reliability of HEV and EV motors. Power cycling demands, extreme temperatures, and exposure to fluids are just a few. In this presentation, attendees will learn how automotive engineers, in collaboration with materials engineering specialists, can model and simulate HEV/EV motor insulation systems. Participants will discover the importance of evaluating the electrical insulation systems based on the chemical, electrical, thermal, and mechanical requirements specific to their designs.
- Learn how testing capability and material science helps automotive OEMs solve insulation challenges associated with HEV/EV motor design
- Understand why materials science benefits product performance, reliability, manufacturability
- Learn how materials from DuPont such as Nomex®, Voltatex® and Kapton® address HEV/EV motor design challenges
- Discover the benefits of a total system solution for HEV/EV motors
