Motor controller is used in vehicles with electric powertrains to drive and control the motor power. It supplies battery power to the traction motor during operation and recharges the battery using energy recovered during deceleration. This 150kW high-performance motor controller is based on the latest Silicon Carbide (SiC) technology, with over 30% boost in power density and mroe than 3% boost in efficiency.
Traditional motor controller has the disadvantages of low efficiency and power density.
Automotive Platforms and Application Systems (APAS) R&D Centre was established in 2006 by the Innovation and Technology Commission of HKSAR Government and hosted by the Hong Kong Productivity Council. The Centre undertakes R&D programmes as well as commercialising R&D results in collaboration with industry, universities and technology institutes for the development of the APAS technology. Since its establishment, APAS R&D Centre has carried out over 100 R&D projects and focus on 3 R&D areas, Green Transportation, Smart Mobility and Intelligent Systems. To facilitate greater synergy and further enhance cost effectiveness, APAS is form part of the Hong Kong Productivity Council with effect from 1 Nov 2012.
