EU HORIZON 2020 - TELL - Towards a fast-uptake of mEdium/Low-voltage eLectric power trains

Date: 01/12/2018 - 30/11/2021

Coordinator:
Infineon Technologies Austria AG, Austria

Consortium:

  • I-FEVS - Interactive Fully Electrical Vehicles SRL, Italy
  • S.M.E. SPA Societa Unipersonale, Italy
  • Valeo Equipements Electriques Moteur SAS, France
  • University of Surrey, United Kingdom 

Volume:
5,67 Mio. € 


Project:
The TELL project addresses the large-scale manufacturing of Low and Mid voltage power converters and more in general Low and Mid voltage powertrain solutions targeting:

  • The electrification of the small and lower-medium segments accounting for about 70% (8 millions/year) of the current total passenger cars sold in Europe,
  • Hybrid vehicles adopting a low voltage add-on electric propulsion,
  • The light weight urban mobility sector which on a global scale is exponentially growing.

The general aim of TELL is to introduce innovations in: i) the entire powertrain, consisting of inverter, motor and transmission; and ii) the integration of components and subsystems. The TELL powertrain solutions will be addressing present and future urban mobility needs, and in comparison with the current state-of-the-art they will be characterized by a superior level of:

  • Safety
  • Efficiency and robustness
  • Flexibility
  • Ease of manufacture
  • Electric motor technology based on synchronous reluctance machines
  • Electric motor sensing and control
  • Inverter technology
  • Security of the electrical and electronic (E/E) architecture

The TELL powertrains will be demonstrated on two electric vehicle platforms: i) a four-wheel-drive vehicle operated at a nominal voltage of 100 V by a Si MOSFET based inverter; and ii) a two-wheel-drive vehicle operated at a nominal voltage of 48 V by an inverter based on GaN semiconductor technology.
