APM200 Motor

The APM200 has been designed specifically to meet the requirements of a high performance traction motor. Its unique spoke architecture enables the rotor to be liquid cooled increasing the motors continuous power output capability. The motor has a maximum speed of 10,000 rpm and incorporates an integral 5.5 :1 epicyclic gearbox which means that the output shaft of the gearbox can be connected directly to the wheel hub. The motor has a peak power of 220kW, and a peak torque of 450Nm.

Equipmake has developed a bespoke inverter to drive the APM200 motor. The inverter incorporates the latest Power Electronic technology with silicon carbide diodes combined with IGBT’s to improve the power capability and enable the inverter to run at high switching frequencies. The inverter has been designed to run at a DC voltage of 750V, with a peak current rating of 500A rms.
