    Article
    Open Access
    In the next years is expected an important rise in sales of electrical scooters in the entire world but especially in China. In order to address this challenge the electric scooter industry has to be more competitive in ...
  • Minimization of torque ripple in switched reluctance motor drives using direct instantaneous torque 

    Castro Soriano, Javier; Andrada Gascón, Pedro; Blanqué Molina, Balduino (2012-04-25)
    Article
    Open Access
    Torque ripple is an inherent characteristic of switched reluctance motor drives due to its double salient geometry and it is a serious drawback in applications that require smooth torque and high dynamic performances. This ...
  • Environmental and life cycle cost analysis of one switched reluctance motor drive and two inverter-fed induction motor drives 

    Andrada Gascón, Pedro; Blanqué Molina, Balduino; Martínez Piera, Eusebio; Perat Benavides, Josep Ignasi; Sánchez López, José Antonio; Torrent Burgués, Marcel (2012-08)
    Article
    Open Access
    Herein is described an environmental and life cycle cost (LCC) analysis of one switched reluctance motor (SRM) drive and two inverter-fed induction motor (IM) drives. The two types of drives are compared based on critical ...
