Compact and Efficient Electric Propulsion Systems Enabled by Integrated Electric Controllable Clutches

Conference paper
Part of the Proceedings book series (PROCEE)


Vehicle electrification is challenging conventional propulsion system design like never before, especially in transmission development. Of the numerous competing challenges, electrified propulsion systems need to be energy efficient, compact, and flexible, all while meeting vehicle performance criteria.
