Dave Winterborne

Research Associate


Currently part of the Höganäs Research Centre within the Electrical Power group, Dave investigates the use of soft magnetic composites in novel electrical machine topologies in close collaboration with Höganäs AB, Sweden. His focus is the design, manufacture and testing of electrical machines for automotive and industrial applications.

Dave also has a background in the design and control of power electronics and drives, being awarded the PhD degree in 2014 for his work on the control of induction motors. He has subsequently worked on integrated drive projects, developing and building prototype drives using both switched reluctance and permanent magnet synchronous technology for electric and hybrid vehicles. As well the electrical and electromagnetic design, he has experience with thermal and mechanical analysis, and design for manufacture and assembly.
