As consumer demands and requirements for advanced e-motors increase, there is more and more demand being put on the primary and secondary insulation systems used in these motors. During this webinar, DuPont technical experts and Polestar electric machine designers will introduce challenges and several different insulation methods and materials that can assist designers in making the proper insulation selection for each motor type. These insulation systems, when used to optimize the design of an e-motor, can contribute to benefits such as efficiency, power, durability, sustainability, and most importantly safety to help protect consumers and their passengers. 

What attendees will learn: 

  • Challenges in insulation system design for E-motors considering developments in power electronics, cooling systems and fast charging of EVs. 
  • View of the E-Motor design market through the lens of an insulation solutions provider 
  • How Insulation System Materials enhance the value and benefit to E-Motors 
  • Critical Insulation Specifications and their impact on system performance 
  • Case studies on next generation designs that can make an impact 
  • Designing for Tomorrow 


Presenters’ bio:

Benjamin Gaussens was born in Toulouse, France, in 1987. He received an M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Institut National Polytechnique (ENSEEIHT), Toulouse, France, and a Ph.D. degree still in electrical engineering at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan, France. His research interests include design of innovative topology of electromagnetic actuators and their modeling. Benjamin has filed 15+ patents and published 20+ peer-reviewed and conference papers. After 10 years in the e-motor industry, he joined DuPont as a Principal Investigator to support the growth in the Automotive segment. He is leading product and application development efforts notably for the emerging 800V SiC e-powertrain generation. 

Martino Bailoni was born in Trento, Italy, in 1986. He received an M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Trieste, Italy. His research interests include the design of high voltage and high performing electrical motors for automotive and industrial applications. After 10 years in the e-motor industry, Martino joined DuPont as an Application Development Leader to support the growth in the Automotive segment. 

Shafigh Nategh (Senior Member, IEEE) was born in 1984. He received the Ph.D. degree in electric power engineering from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, in 2013. He was a Visiting Scholar with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, IL, USA, from 2012 to 2013. From 2013 to 2015, he was a Lead Designer of PM machines for marine segment with the Rolls-Royce Group, Trondheim, Norway. He continued his career as a Designer of traction motors for railway applications with Bombardier Transportation, Västerås, Sweden, from 2015 to 2018. He was an R&D Senior Engineer with E-mobility Department, ABB AB, Västerås, Sweden, in 2018–2020, and Principal Engineer with Volvo Cars, Göteborg, Sweden, in 2020-2022. He is currently a Senior Principal Engineer with Polestar, Göteborg, Sweden. Dr. Nategh is a Secretary of Electrical Machines Technical Committee, IES-IEEE and Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics. His research interests include different aspects of electromagnetic, thermal, and insulation design of traction motors in marine, aerospace, railway, and e-mobility applications.
