EMD Research Group to host UK Magnetics Society Seminar – Monday 15th February 2016

The Electrical Machines and Drives Research Group will host a UK Magnetics Society Seminar on the topic of Innovative Electrical Machines, on Monday 15th February 2016. The seminar will take place at Mappin Hall, Sir Frederick Mappin Building, University of Sheffield.

UK Magnetic Society LogoWith the ever increasing demand for high power density, high efficiency and low cost electrical machines in applications ranging from domestic appliances, electric and hybrid vehicles (EV and HEV), robotics, and renewable energy, etc, exciting research to tackle the above challenges are being undertaken in the UK and worldwide.

This seminar will gather prominent researchers and industrialists in the area, providing a unique insight into the latest developments, and illustrating novel EM devices such as magnetic geared machines, high temperature superconducting (HTS) machines and large-scale application of existing machine forms.

There will be plenty of opportunities for networking, and at the end of the seminar delegates will be invited to visit the laboratory facilities in the Electrical Machines and Drives (EMD) group.
