The purpose of my thesis is to establish a simple thermal model for a Parker GVM 210-150P motor and a SEVCON Gen4 Size8 inverter. These models give temperature variations of critical components in the motor and the inverter. My thesis will help Georgia Tech's EcoCAR-3 team in understanding the physics behind thermal modeling and why thermal study is necessary. This work is a prerequisite for Software in the Loop (SIL) simulations or Hardware in the Loop (HIL) simulations for a hybrid electric vehicle.
