Abstract: How and why did the design engineers decide which electric machine type to develop for modern hybrid & electric vehicles? Similar machine types seem to be used in all hybrids. The all electric vehicles have been developed using a different machine topology. This presentation reviews theToyota Prius hybrid vehicle and many that followed to gain insight to this question. We will explain vehicle traction motor design and selection. The audience will come away with clear understanding of the choices, some tradeoffs and a starting placein mind for their own efforts. Details will be presented for the drive train of nearly every such vehicle currently in production. Knowledge of what has been done earlier will help avoid re-invention.
