The technologies developed in CIPED are state of the art in their respective areas, and include: 

  • A unique type of switched reluctance motor with a high energy efficiency at both high and low speed, as well as a rugged, fault tolerant nature.
  • An energy harvesting dampening system that will increase the range of vehicles when driving.
  • A customizable, modular and fault tolerant control unit for the switched reluctance motor.

Even though the technologies are in an early stage, they have attracted attention from the industry, and both technologies have been fitted to dedicated applications where their unique properties solves main challenges preventing the application to unfold the full potential.
