Studies Regarding the Tests of Permanent Magnet Motor for Vehicle Propulsion



In this paper the author presents a laboratory bench used to test the Permanent Magnet (PM) motors for vehicle propulsion. Are indicated the general schemas for the bench, the PM motor types tested, the traction characteristics and some experimental results. All this work is very suitable to teach students in practical laboratory applications regarding the electrical and hybrid vehicles. Students are able to have good practical skills and also to develop research projects jointly with the teaching staff.
