Electro-Mechanical vs More electric Actuators for new systems designs – EMMA2

MAIN OBJECTIVE

The overall goal of EMMA2 is to scientifically evaluate and validate the optimal deployment of EMA / EHA hydraulics technologies in cyber-physical systems. This will enable the Finnish industry to advance from partial (drivetrain) electrification to offering fully electric solutions in all major export industries.

OBJECTIVES
in more detail

 

Create
a knowledge base
high power
linear actuator selection tool for various applications.
Validate the robustness of more electric high-power actuator solutions (electro-mechanical and electro-hydrostatic).
Check the integrability of the actuator to the system using simulation and extensive experimentation.
Establish
novel business solutions that effectively commercialize green value and accelerate the green and digital transition in the Non-Road Mobile Machine ecosystem.

RESEARCH / FOCUS AREAS

  • Electrohydraulic Actuators
  • Electromechanical Actuators
  • Electrification of Non-Road Mobile Machinery
  • Efficient Powertrains
  • Green Transition. 

OTHER DETAILS

The market for Non-Road Mobile Machines (NRMM) is growing constantly, where the global market size has grown rapidly from $93B in 2008 to $149B in 2014 and to $200B in 2018 following CAGR of 8.0%.

Finland has several companies which have significant market share and are the market leaders within their own areas.

Hence, to remain in competition amid tighter environmental regulations, comply with legislation, and to transit to greener solutions, Finnish NRMM industry needs substantial R&D support for more innovative and efficient solutions for the electrification.

This project will explore through extensive research, what actuator solutions and actuator architectures will be most efficient based on the machine requirements.
