The MAGSPLIT® electronically Continuously Variable Transmission (eCVT) device is a new concept for hybrid vehicle drivetrains. The system comprises a fully integrated magnetic powersplit and motor generator which are simultaneously controlled using a single stator assembly. This duality of purpose leads to unparalleled powertrain efficiency and noise and vibration reduction in a very compact system, enabling its use in a greater range of vehicles than is currently achievable and cost effective within existing hybrid drivetrains. These advantages provide the USP for the MAGSPLIT system and are highly dependent on the capability of the stator design. The stator design now plays a key role in the system and functional advances beyond the current state-of-the-art supporting increased market penetration of MAGSPLIT in a greater number of vehicles in a wider range of platforms. Concurrent component and process design through a structured lean approach is also expected to deliver benefits for both, further enhancing the MAGSPLIT value proposition, increasing market penetration.

The MAGSPLIT® electronically Continuously Variable Transmission (eCVT) device is a new concept for hybrid vehicle drivetrains. The system comprises a fully integrated magnetic powersplit, and motor/generator. MAGSPLIT offers unparalleled powertrain efficiency and noise and vibration reduction in a very compact system, enabling its use in a greater range of vehicles than is currently achievable and cost effective within existing hybrid drivetrains. These advantages are achieved by the magnetic gearing effect at the heart of MAGSPLIT and all Magnomatics’ products, enabled by the unique Pole Piece Rotor (PPR) component. The achievement of a cost effective, high volume production capability for PPR that retains robustness and high performance is a key element in the success of MAGSPLIT. This project will identify and deliver a production intent PPR using manufacturing advances beyond the current state-of-the-art supporting increased market penetration of MAGSPLIT in a greater number of vehicles in a wider range of platforms. Concurrent component and process design is also expected to benefit both areas and further enhance MAGSPLIT performance.

Patent
Magnomatics | Date: 2014-05-08

An apparatus and method for estimating the position of a rotor. An apparatus comprises a first rotor having an angular position, a second rotor which interacts with the first rotor in a magnetically geared manner, a sensor for measuring a kinematic property of the second rotor and means for estimating the angular position of the first rotor using a model-based observer, wherein the estimation is based on at least the kinematic property of the second rotor. A method of estimating the angular position of a first rotor comprises measuring a kinematic property of a second rotor, wherein the second rotor interacts with the first rotor in a magnetically geared manner; and estimating the angular position of the first rotor using a model-based observer based on at least the kinematic property of the second rotor.
