of electric vehicles today have permanent magnet (PM) motors.
PM motors are problematic because there’s a supply shortage of Rare Earth Elements (REE). That’s why the industry is moving toward RE-free motors.
More For Less
Dynamic Motor Drive (DMD) removes reliance on REE and gives you more efficiency at a lower cost.
When torque requests are low, DMD pulses the magnetic field at optimal efficiency. A conventional motor running continuously can’t deliver as much efficiency.
With the move to electrification, RE magnet dependence, range anxiety and battery costs are still looming issues. DMD provides an affordable software efficiency solution, free from the environmental and cost impacts of RE metals.
What Makes DMD Different
Scalable, transparent, and straight forward integration
High efficiency solution at a lower cost than alternatives
Accelerates transition to environmentally friendly RE-free motors
DMD Reduces System Losses
DMD makes systems more efficient by reducing core and inverter switching losses. Results? 25% reduction in energy loss.
Software Solution Boosts EV’s Evolution
DMD is a software solution that improves Externally Excited Synchromous Motors (EESMs) and other RE-free motors. DMD software completes existing systems, making EESMs as efficient at low speeds as they are at high speeds. Now you can get efficiency without RE.
Use no magnets and are primarily secondary drives
Internal Permanent Magnet Machines
Dominate EVs but require expensive problematic rare earth elements (REE)
Externally Excited Synchronous Motors
Replace REE magnets with copper reducing cost with equivalent performance
Technology in Action
Dynamometer work has proven DMD value; vehicles demonstrate on-road drivability and customer acceptance.
Tula provides design consulting, R&D and IP licensing services to its customers as well.
Our 150kW vehicle traction-motor development dyne is proving efficiency gains.
Dynamic waveform control eliminates perception of DMD in vehicle operation.
