Research Interests

Electrical machine design using soft magnetic composites

Soft magnetic composites allow the designer to produce electromagnetic components with full three dimensional freedom, opening up the possibiolity for new machine topologies with improved performance.  Using 3D design techniques a variety of machine types are being investigated and prototypes with applications including automotive and domestic appliances.

Fault tolerant electrical machines for Aerospace applications

Aerospace systems are increasingly being replaced by electrical systems for reduced mass and increased efficiency.  For many aerospace systems fault tolerance is paramount in order for the electrical system to meet the stringent reliability level required.  Research is being carried out in the design of fault tolerant electrical machines for secondary and flight critical systems.
