Elaphe Propulsion Technologies is the winner of the 2019 Disruptors Award, delivered by the European Commission's Initiative ICT for Manufacturing SMEs (I4MS). The awarded company is a developer and producer of high-tech propulsion technology based on the premise of multiple-motor propulsion.
Elaphe benefited as an SME in faster processing with HPC-based simulation tools, as well as evaluating more complex coupled physical models, resulting in products with better NVH characteristics saving time and resources.
The winning experiment focused on acoustic evaluation of a motor concept in early phases of design. Reducing and modulating acoustic noise emissions of electric vehicles improves the soundscape, especially in the urban areas, so the experiment brings about very relevant solutions to market needs. This new methodology was implemented and evaluated on the next-generation prototypes of Elaphe passenger car in-wheel motors.
