Research output: NRELPoster


During FY 2022, NREL efforts focused on supporting collaborations with external research partners within the Electric Drive Technologies research consortium. The poster highlights collaborations with SNL, ORNL, and Georgia Tech. The collaboration with SNL utilized NREL's experimental capabilities to mechanically characterize SNL-provided material samples for motor applications. The collaboration with ORNL supported efforts to refine the design of a high-speed, non-heavy-rare-earth outer-rotor motor. The collaboration with Georgia Tech focused on a novel cooling technique for electric machines. NREL supported the effort by leading the thermal analysis and design of advanced machines.
