Powering The Future

Let’s talk about in-wheel motors

In recent years, we’ve seen some vehicle developers moving towards powertrain configurations where the motor is mounted inside the wheel: an in-wheel motor system. We must admit, there is an impressive amount of new space available when the electric motors are integrated into the wheels. And sure, these so-called hub motors or in-wheel motors come with certain benefits, but they also create some challenges.

Double-rotor or double-stator: a matter of efficiency

If you’re familiar with electric motors, you’ve probably noticed that not all axial flux motors are the same. Magnax have opted for a single-stator double-rotor (SSDR) configuration, while other axial flux motor developers use a double-stator single-rotor (DSSR) disc-type structure. Maybe you’ve even read about a double-stator triple-rotor set-up?

China and Magnets; a Future Problem?

Since 2000, we have witnessed an evolution in the direction of motors and generators fitted with permanent magnets in the rotor (usually referred to as Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machines PMSM). In any motor, interaction of the magnetic fields of the rotor and the stator create the rotational force that drives the machine.
