Dragos-Mihai Postariu

Electric Motors Design Lead Koenigsegg Automotive

Dragos-Mihai POSTARIU is directing the Vehicle Simulation and Electric motor Magnetic Design at Koenigsegg Automotive. Prior to that, he has worked for 15 years in the automotive industry and motorsport. He has initially focused on extracting the maximum performance from new electric motor design concepts and gradually moving towards vehicle level high voltage powertrain design. He was responsible of the FEA-based electromagnetic design of multiple championship winning Formula 1 and Formula E electric motors, as well as validation and industrialization of road-relevant automotive products. His passion for finite elements modelling techniques comes from his Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from the École Nationale Supérieure d’Ingénieurs Électriciens de Grenoble (France).

Designing e-Motors for the Koenigsegg Gemera's Record-breaking Goals

Founded in 1994 by Christian von Koenigsegg, Koenigsegg Automotive AB is a world leader in engineering and manufacturing of ultimate performance megacars and cutting-edge mobility technologies. 

  • Developed for the Gemera 4-seater megacar, the electric motor called the Quark, is a tiny powerhouse 
  • The Quark deploys up to 250kW and 600Nm, all in a package of 32kg. The peak power and torque figures are available for 20 seconds, which will help push the Gemera up to its top speed of 400km/h 
  • The design of the Quark optimizes axial-flux design by harnessing radial-flux leakage to augment the total output of the motor, thus offering a good balance between power and torque 
  • Cutting edge motors require cutting edge software. Therefore, Koenigsegg has chosen to use Altair Flux for electromagnetic design. We have pushed the limits of software and hardware to find the best in electromagnetic performance and efficiency by using a number of levers available in Flux 
  • From refining the parts flux paths, geometry, to testing numerous soft and hard magnetic materials and winding configurations. The result is a motor that exceeded initial targets and is industry-leading in terms of power and torque density
