S2R-OC-IP1-01: Consortium sought needing expertise in very high power density permanent magnet and prospective market studies on traction systems
Summary:
A French pool of laboratories, gathered by a cluster for motors and electrical devices for energy efficiency based in northern France, is willing to participate within a S2R-OC-IP1-01 "Tools and methodologies supporting the development of next generation traction systems, and brakes" project proposal. A coordinator and partners are being sought with expertise in digitalization and big data, eco-labelling and very high power density and energy density.
Description:
The French cluster specialized in motors and electrical devices for energy efficiency, based in North of France, has gathered 4 laboratories which are willing to participate within a Shift2Rail open call for non-JU members S2R-OC-IP1-01-2016. The topic of this call is "Tools and methodologies supporting the development of next generation traction systems, and brakes" and the partners are willing to take part to one of the two main specific challenges on "Traction Systems".

The four laboratories share large experience in electrical engineering, power electronics, electro technical systems, electric actuators and motor function systems with embedded energy. Within the specific challenge "Traction Systems", the pool of laboratory can take work packages on two of five streams:
- Research on very high power density permanent magnet motor for wheel mechanical integration
- Prospective market studies on traction systems

The specific expertise of the pool of laboratories is in these several subjects, showing their ability to answer to the specific challenges mentioned above:
Electrical machines and motor function systems
o Physics and electronics of materials, devices, interfaces and contacts
o Power electronics
o Converters
o Actuators
o Energy storage
o Monitoring the electrical component aging
o Ecodesign and lifecycle analysis

Electromagnetism (for permanent magnet motors)
o Physics and engineering of electromagnetism
o Electromagnetic simulations and multi-physics modeling
o Predictive maintenance methods based on the analysis of the external magnetic flux

Efficiency improvement
o Noise -Y- vibrations analysis and improvement
o Power electronics optimization
o Energy efficiency increase
o Modeling electrical grids

These laboratories are used to work together and with leading companies from railway industry, electrical motor manufacturing, power supply and electrical industries. They are laboratory references in the rail and transportation oriented projects. They have also been working in cooperation with several international research centers and universities and are experienced in participating in European project in the framework of H2020 or former research funding programs.

The French cluster is leading this inquiry and is the contact point for the external stakeholders concerning this initiative. It used to work with companies and research laboratories within collaborative R-Y-D projects.

The French cluster and the pool of laboratories are looking for partners to work on a proposal for this open call. The partners should have experience and expertise in these 3 elements of the "Traction systems" specific challenge:
- Digitalisation and big data
- Eco-labelling
- Very high power density and energy density

Joining an existing consortium, where additional competences on prospective market studies and very high power density permanent magnet motors are needed, is the preferred strategy of the cluster and laboratories. They are also open to partners able to fulfill the requirements hereinabove mentioned to build the consortium (a coordinator is then needed too).

Call: S2R-OC-IP1-01 "Tools and methodologies supporting the development of next generation traction systems, and brakes"
Call Deadline: 17/03/2016
Advantages and Innovations:
The specific expertise of the pool of laboratories is in these several subjects, showing their ability to answer to the specific challenges mentioned above:
Electrical machines and motor function systems
o Physics and electronics of materials, devices, interfaces and contacts
o Power electronics
o Converters
o Actuators
o Energy storage
o Monitoring the electrical component aging
o Ecodesign and lifecycle analysis

Electromagnetism (for permanent magnet motors)
o Physics and engineering of electromagnetism
o Electromagnetic simulations and multi-physics modeling
o Predictive maintenance methods based on the analysis of the external magnetic flux

Efficiency improvement
o Noise -Y- vibrations analysis and improvement
o Power electronics optimization
o Energy efficiency increase
o Modeling electrical grids

Thus, thanks to these expertise and experience on these subjects, the laboratories can manage the two parts "Research on very high power density permanent magnet motors for wheel mechanical integration" and "Prospective market studies". Their experience in previous and ongoing project on similar subject are of interest to reach the expected impact of designing tools and methods to contribute to the achievement of life cycle cost minimization.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The French cluster and the pool of laboratories are looking for partners from research and industry to work on a proposal for this Shift2Rail open call SR2-OC-IP1-2016 "Tools and methodologies supporting the development of next generation traction systems, and brakes". The partners should have experience and expertise in these 3 elements of the "Traction systems" specific challenge:

- Digitalization and big data (in traction systems): Establish benchmark of existing major trends, comparing them to other domains like consumer electronics, house connected objects, internet sectors, connected cars, etc. The progress beyond the benchmark will have to be analyzed and recommendations provided on potential re-use of concepts or technologies from other sectors for traction components.

- Eco-labelling: The work should analyze and describe what type of eco-labelling could potentially be implemented for traction systems. It will include the analysis and recommendations as to the type of information, targets of the communication, benchmark and transfer of other existing approaches (example: cars, planes, consumer electronics), and potential channels of communication. The target would be to have comparable eco-label communication between railway sector companies and between railway and other transport modes. Energy, CO2 emissions, noise, air pollution, recyclability, electromagnetic emissions could be included in the studies.

- Very high power density and energy density: Currently, the existing energy storage technologies do not provide the needed energy and power density performances, apart from light rail vehicle applications, limiting the use of such technologies to progress on other train types, or hybrid vehicle, like regional trains or locomotives. The work should include research and development of tools and methodologies for technology transfer from other sectors, e.g. automotive, in order to bring higher technical performances to railways.

The work should also include support and expertise needed to trigger these changes, including:
- Analysis of existing regulation issues for adhesion management in braking;
- Comparison of more advanced adhesion management concepts with existing regulation;
- Identification of gaps between adhesion management concepts and regulation;
- Making proposals for solving these conflicts, notably by developing a specific roadmap

Joining an existing consortium, where additional competences on prospective market studies and very high power density permanent magnet motors are needed, is the preferred strategy of the cluster and laboratories. They are also open to partners able to fulfill the requirements hereinabove mentioned to build the consortium (a coordinator is then needed too).
