This paper introduces the development process and investigation of a 60kW induction motor for electric vehicles. We present performance improvement in the induction motor of electric vehicle using copper die-casting based on a multi-gate process. Copper die-casting motors can reduce the size of the motor, the loss of the rotor, and material costs. We also introduce electromagnetic, thermal, mechanical design and analysis results that satisfy the design and the performance requirements. In order to analyze losses accurately of induction motor, commercial finite element analysis is done considering PWM voltage and thermal characteristics by using lumped-circuit parameters. Experimental tests are also carried out to validate the traction motor design.
