14:00-14:30 – Novel robust motor e-fluid cooling concepts

Presented by Stephan Schlimpert (Flanders Make), Michael Gahagan (Lubrizol)

The advancement of next-gen electric vehicles demands compact, efficient, and cost-effective drive-trains. These smaller units, operating at equivalent power levels, require enhanced cooling for heat dissipation. Recent studies showed the high potential of oil cooled inverter and direct oil jet cooled motor windings as one of the most promising cooling solution. Challenges include ensuring compatibility between oils and materials to prevent motor failures. Flanders Make and Lubrizol collaborated to develop a systematic methodology, resulting in guidelines and degradation datasets to mitigate early design failures. Lubrizol’s e-fluid EVOGEN is identified as compatible with various powertrain components, making it ideal for high-performance single e-fluid powertrains.
