First FEMM Hub Short Course
On 5 September, we ran our first short course titled ‘An introduction to electrical machines’ which was available exclusively to our hub academic and industrial partners.
The course took place in the Diamond, the University of Sheffield and provided an introduction to electrical machines, however, covered sufficient content at an intermediate level for those with more background.
The full-day course led by hub director Professor Geraint Jewell covered Electrical drive systems, the basic anatomy of electrical machines, magnetic materials, underlying principles of electromagnetic torque, the types, sizes and losses in electrical machines. The short course closed with an electrical machine design case study by Professor Jiabin Wang.
