The EV and EV powertrains are of great demand these days. Thermal management and cooling of the EV powertrain com-ponents is one of the vital aspects. Electric motor (E-Motor) is the main component for this powertrain. This thesis would explore the various methods for cooling the E-Motor. Further, carrying out the intensive 3D CFD-thermal simulations and studying effective cooling methods to avoid any hot spot or critical temperature rise. A reduced order model of the E-motor would also be developed based on the 3D CFD thermal Simulation. This reduced order model would provide a basis of future thermal digital twins embedded into a system simulation framework.
- Literature review for the E-motor cooling methods.
- 3D CFD-thermal simulation of the E-motor (Mesh-Simulation-Post processing).
- Parametric study based on influential parameters.
- Developing one simplified surrogate or reduced order model for 1D system simulation.
- Documentation and Publication.
