    Default New SAE papers published on Voltec design

    This week was the SAE World Congress and a number of General Motors engineers, employees, various suppliers, and co-op grad studens delivered papers and presentations on various aspects of the Voltec design.

    In fact, the number of papers brought forward by GM this year set an all-time SAE record!

    I'm sure more than a few of you would find these papers very interesting and as enlightening as I have. (and quite resonable $$ especially if you are an SAE member)

    Below is a partial list

    ENJOY!

    Wow, that sort of redefines "information overload", LOL. We knew that the Volt was a technological breakthrough, but this really drives the point home. Thanks.

    Hey, what sort of motor is is the Volt?

    It's been widely reported that the Volt has a three-phase AC induction motor. But the"Voltec 4ET50" paper says the motor is "permanent magnet AC synchronous". That is not the same thing.

    This makes a difference because a permanent magnet motor uses rare earths, and an induction motor doesn't.

    So which is it?

    Anybody have any insight here?
