AVL is the world's largest independent company for development of powertrains (combustion engines, hybrid systems, electric drive) as well as simulation and test systems for passenger cars, trucks and marine engines.

We offer a master thesis:

Modelling, simulation and optimization of Axial Flux Machine for traction EV application

Axial Flux Permanent Magnet machines are being increasingly used in many industrial fields, such as electric aircrafts or high-performance electrified cars with in-wheel machines. One of the main advantages is the greater torque density compared to conventional Radial Flux Machines. However, Axial Flux machines have many challenges to overcome, including mechanical/cooling integration and rotor dynamics.


  • Literature study
  • FEM simulation of baseline electric machine layout
  • Study of inverter current effect in machine performance
  • Analysis of electromagnetic stator forces, bearing forces, efficiency maps and rotor dynamics
  • Geometry optimization through Design of Experiment and Neuronal Networks
  • Reporting and summarizing the methodology


  • Electrical or Mechanical engineering, Technical physics


  • Experience in electric motors is appreciated
  • Language: English or German

Remuneration: The successful completion of the thesis is remunerated with a one-time fee of EUR 2,500 before tax.

According to the Austrian Employment of Foreign Nationals Act it is unfortunately not possible to assign graduate work to third-country citizens (Non-EU citizens) and Croatian citizens who study at a university abroad.
