Design and Testing of a Race Car Inverter
MetadataShow full item record
This Master s Thesis will present the design, implementation and testing of a two-level voltage source inverter and motor control system. The target vehicle is driven on all four wheels, so a four channel inverter system is needed. The target motor of the car is a three-phase permanent magnet synchronous motor. The VSI presented is based on Silicon-Carbide Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistors(SiC MOSFETs). The motor control system will be targeted at Atmel microcontrollers, for physical implementation in the car. Furthermore, base development for a System-on-Chip(SoC) will be done, for further development at later stages. Switching the motor control system onto a more powerful SoC will enable more precise control of the motor.
