YASA Motors, specialists in the design & production of very high power and torque density axial...
Oxford University Energy and Power Group:
The YASA™ motor technology was originally developed in the Energy and Power group at Oxford University. Projects, such as the LIFECar and Riversimple Urban Car were undertaken within an academic context. In September 2009, YASA™ Motors was created to commercialise the technology. Close links with the Energy and Power Group still exist, and a number of collaborative projects, such as the YAMOT project are currently being undertaken.
YASA Motors have been working closely with Sevcon since 2010. Sevcon offer outstanding motor drive solutions. The YASA-750 has been optimised to work well with the Gen4 Size 8 controller. Recently Sevcon have developed the Gen4 Size 10 controller for use with the high performance YASA-400 motor.
Delta Motor Sport:
Be sure to take a look at the fantastic Delta Motor Sport Delta E4 Coupe which utilises two YASA-750 motors and two Sevcon Gen4 Size 8 Controllers.
The YAMOT project is Technology Strategy Board (TSB) funded project which aims to develop new direct drive Yokeless And Segmented Armature (YASA™) chassis and wheel motor packages that will be ready for volume production.
MSYS is an exciting new TSB project that integrates a YASA motor into a Drive System Design (DSD) Gearbox for use in passenger cars and small vans.
Oxford Brookes University:
