Endowed Laboratory Advanced Automotive Energy Engineering
(SUZUKI MOTOR CORPORATION)

The endowed laboratory carries out various elemental technology researches on automobiles. This educational program began in 2003 and each research period is 3 years as a target. Automobiles are made up by diverse technical fields such as mechanical, material and electronic, therefore students can absorb extensive knowledge of engineering.

Research subject

In this year, we will conduct research on improving the performance of drive motors for electric vehicles (EV). Moreover, we will conduct research on measuring the magnetic properties of magnetic materials, which are essential for improving the accuracy of numerical analysis.

  • Research on magnet temperature estimation of drive motor.
  • Research on vibration improvement of drive motor.
  • Research on electrical and magnetic characteristics of motor core for EV

Research subject
EVs are expected to have high running performance and quiet performance utilizing a motor. We are trying to understand the characteristics of motor and improve the performance with the control system.

Donated Courses
Measure the basic physical properties of magnetic materials such as electrical steel sheets used for motor cores, and improve the accuracy of electromagnetic field analysis.
