There’s a transformation occurring in aerospace: the change to more electric aircraft and electric propulsion. One of the biggest upheavals since the jet engine, electrification will have a major impact, from the environment to radical new flight operations, simplifying onboard systems with consequential maintenance implications, to altering the urban landscape to accomodate new vehicles. But it can only deliver its true potential if the public are positively engaged.
This year’s Ewing will examine this transition, covering materials, motors, aircraft, public engagement and systems, with the aim of creating, developing and cementing relationships within the magnetics community throughout Europe and the UK.
The Ewing Lecture will be given by Prof Chris Gerada of the University of Nottingham, Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Industrial Strategy, Royal Academy of Engineering Chair of Electrical Machines, member of the university’s Power Electronics, Machines and Control group.

LIFETIME CONTRIBUTION TO MAGNETICS AWARD
We are pleased to announce Prof Dr Elena Lomonova of the Electromechanics & Power Electronics Group at Eindhoven University of Technology has accepted our Lifetime Contribution to Magnetics award, and will be present in person at the Ewing to accept the award and deliver a presentation.
The committee felt Prof Lomonova had set an excellent example through her multi-disciplinary approach to fundamental and applied research in mechatronics and electromechanical motion systems, power electronic system architectures, and power converters, leading to novel and effective solutions and an impressive output of projects, papers and patents. In addition, she has led her university research unit to great effect in bridging the academic / industrial gap.
