—This paper presents a multiphysics modeling of a switched reluctance motor (SRM) to simulate the acoustic radiation of the electrical machine. The proposed method uses a 2-D finite-element model of the motor to simulate its magnetic properties and a multiphysics mechatronic model of the motor and controls to simulate operating conditions. Magnetic forces(More)
The product race has become an innovation race, reconciling challenges of branding, performance, time to market and competitive pricing while complying with ecological, safety and legislation constraints. The answer lies in “smart” products of high complexity, relying on heterogeneous technologies and involving active components. To keep pace with this(More)
— This paper analyzes the impact of realistic actu-ator constraints on the potential performance of a hydraulic active suspension system. The optimal control force, requested by an independent vehicle-level control law, can often not be generated by the hydraulic actuator due to physical constraints, resulting in a significant reduction of the suspension(More)
