Silicon Mobility announces inverter to reduce range anxiety

Electric vehicles are the future but the range anxiety is still highly prevalent in comparison to fuel cars. An immediate and effective way to increase electric vehicles range is to use a better and smarter solution to control the electric powertrain.

In this line Silicon Mobility, the technology player powering control solutions for a cleaner, safer and smarter mobility, has announced the availability of OLEA® APP INVERTER HE.

According to company it is a high efficiency inverter and electric motor control application. It is optimized for the OLEA® FPCU which increases range of hybrid and electric vehicles up to 20% with the same battery capacity.

The OLEA® APP INVERTER HE is the first addition to the OLEA® APP High Efficiency application software products portfolio. The portfolio products are specifically designed to be executed on the OLEA® FPCU semiconductor platform from Silicon Mobility.

OLEA® APP INVERTER HE integrates unique adaptive control algorithms which apply the most suitable control strategy upon requested power, motor angle, and speed. OLEA® APP INVERTER HE controls the inverter and e-Motor cutting energy losses into the power switches and into the electric motor while extending the operating range of the e-Motor.

Simulations on a WLTP (Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedures) cycle demonstrate an energy gain of 20% when compared to incumbent multi-core microcontroller-based applications.
