Product description

The intensive further development of electric drives is crucial to electromobility. While compact and high-performance motors are required, impacts on the environment and manufacturing costs have to be reduced as well. These challenges are addressed by SciMo - Elektrische Hochleistungsantriebe GmbH (SciMo - Electric High-performance Motors), a startup of KIT established in 2017. SciMo has already developed several successful motors that helped KIT's "Ka-RaceIng" team win the "Formula Student Electric 2016" and were used in the prototype of TU München winning the Hyperloop competition of SpaceX 2017, for instance. The motors main characteristics are their small sizes and high power outputs. The compact design is achieved by an elevatedrotational speed level. By means of a downstream gearbox, the rotational speed of the electric motor can be adapted ideally to various drive scenarios. Innovative cooling methods, such as the indirect groove cooling method optimized by SciMo, allow for very high continuous current densities, which increases the performance of the motors. With these properties, they might also be used as generators in future airborne wind power plants.
