Abstract:Rising greenhouse gas emissions led to environmental concerns regarding climate change. The automotive industry produces vast amounts of greenhouse gases every day. The adop- tion of stricter regulations has motivated a notable development in technological advances of EV systems during the past few decades. Such advances have been reported in the litera- ture for specific powertrain subsystems. This report reviews the characteristics, topologies, trends, and limitations in the advancement of the major subsystems in the electric powertrain. Literature and the EV market are reviewed to identify trends in WBG devices in power converters, rising DC link voltages, Li-ion battery development, and electric machine applications. Overall, technological advancements in EV powertrain are under continual ef- fort to increase the efficiency of powertrain subsystems to compensate for the limited energy density of battery technologies, which stems from a need to increase the drive range of EVs while maintaining or reducing the cost of manufacturing.
