An electric vehicle is powered by an electric powertrain. The powertrain is comprised of several components including the battery, a motor, power electronics and software. This system converts electrical energy from the battery to mechanical energy, which is delivered to the wheels.
EDT is a platform technology based on novel motor and power electronics architecture proprietary to DG Innovate. EDT’s principal technology differentiators aim to reduce copper losses and improve reliability. EDT is targeted to deliver significant advantages for electric vehicles in terms of motor performance, reliability, cost and safety compared to existing solutions. EDT has very low thermal constraints, enabling continuous operation at maximum power, while the high motor efficiency across a large part of the speed/load range removes the need for gears in many cases.
