Electrification (full or hybrid electrification) is the key technology to enable zero-carbon emissions for the UK transportation sector, however, the state-of-the-art technologies do not provide feasible electrification solutions. Current electrical systems are too heavy, inefficient and do not meet the reliability requirements.
This seminar will focus on various aspects to enable lightweight electromechanical drives for future transport, especially aviation. Speakers from industries and academia will provide insights on subjects covering design, optimisation, manufacturing and testing, in addition to the up-to-date technologies developments. Aspects will include electromagnetic topologies, materials developments, mechanical challenges, and thermal solutions.
Lab tours will be provided following the talks to the Power Electronics, Machines and Centre (PEMC) Building, Jubilee Campus, University of Nottingham. The 5,500 square metre PEMC is home to the Power Electronics, Machines and Control Research Group, thought to be the largest such group of researchers in the world, as well as the Driving the Electric Revolution Industrialisation Centre – Midlands, and the 20MW UK Electrification of Aerospace Propulsion Facility.
