Understanding the Tesla Model S Performance Motor

Join me for a deep dive into the details of the 18,000 RPM performance rear motor and drive unit from a 2015-2016 Tesla Model S P90D. This drive unit is similar to the one used in the 2017-2020 P100D. The video is divided into four sections showing: 1. The motor and gears. 2. The high-performance bearings. 3. The lubrication system. and 4. The cooling system.
CORRECTIONS:
Thank you to everyone for catching my errors. There are always errors ;)
1. The Nissan Leaf ring gear is held on with 8 bolts, not 6.
2. The fluid in this drive unit is Dexron 6 transmission fluid.
3. Induction motor rotors do not have poles, just the stator. The 60 slot stator has four poles.
4. Silicon Nitride is a ceramic material.

    SKF website (www.skf.com/caribbean/products/rolling-bearings/engineered-products/hybrid-bearings/permissible-speed) says rpm of silicon nitride bearings is limited, their equation gives rpm < 250000/(mean diameter of bearing). Estimating dimensions from your video it appears to me that the 17,900 rpm you mention for the motor is much higher than this limit. Correction: this comment is for grease lubrication.

    Why didn't they just use 2 gears? 😐 why have not just have the differential gear contact the motor gear directly? Its both 78/25 isn't it?

  30. your wife's boyfriend

    your wife's boyfriend5 päivää sitten

    @WeberAuto so basically just adjusting gear size will increase acceleration & torque?

  31. WeberAuto

    WeberAuto5 päivää sitten

    It would need to have gears with sizes relative to being in first gear on a chain driven bicycle. The gear that turns the wheel would have to be gigantic to get the same gear ratio as we have now with two sets of smaller diameter gears.

    I'll be super interested to see the internals of not only the front motors, but also the core differences between the SynR Model 3 motor and the permanent-magnet based S motors. Great to see these layed out like this; I see where the motors needed "refinement" based on secondhand details of their performance limitations and where the coolant would leak prior to those bearings being replaced with those ceramics.

  100. WeberAuto

    WeberAuto15 päivää sitten

    No, the AWD model 3 still has an induction motor in the front. The model S still has an induction motor in the rear. I think they use the induction motors for maximum performance and the PM Synchronous reluctance motors for economy. I suspect they can use just one motor during steady state cruising. I am still investigating that theory.

  101. Girth Quake

    Girth Quake15 päivää sitten

    They could use ceramic bearings because it is an electric motor, there are no vibrations or any loads from the crank and piston system. They have a higher allowable RPM and generate much lower rolling resistance. The density of the oil may be lower, so it is easier to cool it down. This is a well-engineered engine design. For maximum performance, the reducer also uses ball bearings, lower resistance and lower operating temperature due to lower pressures than tapered roller bearings. A nice thought-out drive ... simply. Great explanation, and great video Professor. Thanks. Greeting from Poland

    I have watched many of Professor Kelly's videos. They are well presented, informative and easy to understand. As a gear design engineer with many years experience on off-road vehicle gears I can make following comments 1. Model S final drive gear face width could be wider than required for durability or torque capacity. When the helix angle is low, more face-width is needed for higher overlap ratio and quietness when running (possible explanation) 2. Size of diff carrier bearings. Many times the half shaft spline size required for it's strength under side gear dictates size of bearings rather than load carrying capacity . Also the special bearing type might have a lower capacity than the standard type. Thus requiring a larger size bearing (possible explanation) Please continue making these videos - Good luck

    The quality of their Drivetrain Components set the standard for everybody else. I hope they will apply that to commercial vehicles in the future because that is where the focus of the EV World should be. There are some potential issues in my opinion: -The oilpump setup looks very flimsy and cheap compared to the other components. Also the lack of an actual oil filter should be noted down. Sure the magnet will catch most of the worn off metal but pretty much all modern transmissions have a dedicated oil filter so why not Tesla? -Having multiple compartments with different fluids in them is a potential weak point. So I hope Tesla did their homework and used long lasting high quality seals. Failing seals are the Achilles Heel of any vehicle.

    Maybe we should look at the bearings of the Kawasaki Ninjas of the year 2000. My 250cc Ninja had a redline of 14,000 RPM. 20 year old technology.

    The numbers get truly outrageous when you multiply the torque forward. Take the motor torque and multiply it by 9.344. That's what's going to the wheels. That final gear has to be that big to take that reliably.

    You mentioned that there were 4 poles in the rotor discussion, but then said you don't know how many poles the stator has. The number of poles in (squirrel cage) induction motor is determined by the stator, not the rotor!

  183. WeberAuto

    WeberAuto22 päivää sitten

    @Brian Park That is great information Thank you

  184. Brian Park

    Brian Park22 päivää sitten

    ​@WeberAuto Actually, in induction motor with squirrel cage rotor, the rotor can "take on" any number of poles, as dictated by the stator excitation. Some induction motors change base speed by "pole switching" (reversing the polarity of parts of the stator windings, or switching the current between winding sets.) My washing machine gets 3 different speeds that way, without any electronics. A comment about not having permanent magnets: in addition to permitting hotter rotor, it permits "field weakening", which permits the motor to have an unlimited top speed. This makes it easier to have performance with fixed-ratio gearbox.

  185. WeberAuto

    WeberAuto22 päivää sitten

    Yes, I was wrong. The stators have the four poles not the rotor

    The Diesel Engine has a long future ahead of itself. It not even close to being dead. Overall more efficient and cost effective than gasoline. And contrary to popular opinion Diesels are in fact better on emissions than gasoline could ever be. Diesel/Electric hybrids will be the future.

    Ceramic bearings are exactly what you have in that motor. Ceramic is metallic and silicon nitride is a metallic(ceramic) material.
