Performance is a key requirement of electric motors and generators which are used in many applications, most importantly for electric vehicles, and is paramount in all sectors of motor sports: from KERS in Formula 1 to hybrid solutions in Le Mans cars. The main goals are to push performance and innovation to their limits, targets which have been publicly achieved on the race track in recent years.
In precise terms, the aim is to achieve maximum performance at minimum weight - i.e., to optimise power density. Ultimately, the central technological requirements remain virtually identical, despite variations in the economic framework conditions. Innovative optimised drive technologies are the key pillars of eMobility.
