Results Overview

FEV Generic Architecture

To achieve the aims of reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions, Fully Electric Vehicles (FEVs) need to reach a significant market share. However, the advent of FEVs in mass production presents new challenges to automotive manufacturers due to the relative immaturity of the new building blocks, which may impact on the FEV’s safety and reliability. Among the most important of these is the electric powertrain.

Assessment of EMC and EMF issues

A detailed review of existing and planned automotive EMC standards has been carried out and documented. It was concluded that further development of standards is required in order to fully reflect the features of electric powertrains...

Study on EMF screening

This video demonstrates the different levels of screening that materials exhibit when subjected to low frequency RF fields. This demonstration was carried out by York EMC Services under the HEMIS Project, and aims to show the reducing effect that types of material might have on low frequency emissions in the passenger compartment of an electric vehicle.

Bearings Monitoring

Within the HEMIS project, we are developing an in-vehiclePrognostic and Health Management System (PHMS) for monitoring the bearings of a Fully Electrical Vehicle. The objective of the system is to detect the onset of degradation, isolate the degrading bearing, classifying the type of defect, assess the degradation intensity and predict the failure time...
