About this book

Introduction

This book focuses on one of the most important aspects of electrical propulsion systems – the creation of highly reliable safety-critical traction electrical drives. It discusses the methods and models for analysis and optimization of reliability and fault tolerance indices, based on which, it proposes and assesses methods for improving the availability, fault tolerance and performance of traction electric drives.

Keywords

Multi-phase electric motor Fault tolerance traction electric motor optimal drive train topology drive reliability multilevel electric inverter
