The Eternal City and The Ever-Changing Future

Greetings from Rome, where we were in attendance at the Workshop on Magnetics and Metallurgy 2016 conference. This was a fantastic venue for us to share some of the research we have been working on our with our partners in industry.One of the joys of working in magnetics is that we get a chance to explore many […]

Overcoming Design Challenges in High Performance Motors

  Smaller Motors, Bigger Design Challenges Permanent magnet (PM) motors for EV applications have unique design challenges. As electric motors become smaller and faster, designers must consider the potential effects of electrical drive frequencies, magnetic eddy currents, laminated steel core loss, mechanical stresses on the quickly rotating shaft (rotor dynamics), and electrical control of the […]
