||6th Syrnemo Progress Meeting - Final Meeting
SyrNemo end date has been reached and the project is heading to its final conclusion
on time. The last project semester has seen the consortium focused on the operations of
the motor prototypes in the Hardware-in-the-Loop laboratories of Tecnalia. Final test
results show that the drive system efficiency is 92% on the NEDC and 89% on the WLTC,
with motor peak efficiency is measured at 96% with system peak efficiency beyond 92%.
The final assessment of the proposed motor design shows how it can evaluated based on
two key-performance parameters, i.e. the machine constant of mechanical power and the
torque density. These two parameters have been calculated for the SyrNemo machine design,
either in air-cooled and liquid-cooled configuration. The liquid cooled design results to
be the best-in-class design among the 2016 state-of-the-art rare-earths free PMaSYRM.
This result proves the quality of the presented design as well as the potential for further
improvements, thus enabling the presented machine to constitute a key enabling technology
for next generation electrified vehicles.
||5th Syrnemo Progress Meeting
SyrNemo 30th months is passed, and in the last 6 months the two complete prototypes of
the motor have been manufactured, successfully passing the End-of-Line tests. Prototype #1
has been shipped to Tecnalia, while prototype #2 has been shipped to AIT for preliminary
functional test. In May/June 2016 Tecnalia will setup test-bench and test Prototype #1 according
to the test-plan agreed among the partners in March 2016. Later on in July Prototype #2 will
also be shipped to Tecnalia, to repeat the test matrix and benchmark the results.
The fifth semester has also seen the delivery of the results from the LCA analysis and the
total cost of ownership analysis, while the project is heading to its end and the consortium
is focusing on the industrial exploitation of the results.
||4th Syrnemo Progress Meeting
SyrNemo has now passed its second year, and the design of the SYRM
machine has been finalised and delivered. The consortium is now busy
with the manufacturing of the two prototypes of the SyrNemo drive (WP4)
to initiate the testing phase at the beginning of 2016 (WP5). The 4th progress
meeting is held in Lustenau, kindly hosted and organised by Thien eDrives,
where the prototypes of the housing, stator, rotor and
power electronics have been presented for the first time.
||3rd SyrNemo Progress Meeting
SyrNemo reached its mid-term review, and the partners presented their respective
advances, discussing the finalisation of the WP3 activities and approaching the release
of the final motor design and technical specifications of the SYRM technology.
The meeting was held in Graz, kindly hosted and organised by AVL, together with
the social consortium dinner and the visit to the AVL’s testing facilities.
||2nd SyrNemo Progress Meeting
Since the production of the future SyrNemo Motor is an important aspect, the SyrNemo
partners had the opportunity to visit the production facility of Continental for the
Renault Z.E tractions motors in Gifhorn. During the subsequent progress meeting, the
results of the first year as well as manufacturing technology aspects and their impact
on the final design were reviewed.
||1st SyrNemo Progress Meeting
After the successful workshop on Electromobility, the SyrNemo partners gathered
at the University of Bologna in order to review the first period of the SyrNemo project.
The compiled deliverables as well the next steps in the SyrNemo motor design
process were discussed.
||Kick-Off-Meeting – WP 3 ”Next generation Motor Design“
The Leibnitz university of Hannover hosted the Kick-Off-Meeting for WP3. The involved partners
discussed the first steps, interfaces and responsibilities towards the SyrNemo next
generation motor design. The defined key parameters, the construction and measurement of functional
models as well as the preliminary prototype construction boundaries were also on the agenda.
On October 8th and 9th, 2013, the SyrNemo-Kick-Off-Meeting was held at the
Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT) in Vienna. Representatives from all 8 partners
from 5 European countries (Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Spain), as well as the
responsible Scientific Project Officer were attending the very successful meeting.
