Research projects - Phase 1

The core research activities of the Hub are focused around two Grand Challenge themes. While the themes have been sub-divided into a series of focused work-packages, several key technologies and processes feature in more than one project.

Grand Challenge 1

Manufacturing-led innovation in electrical machines 

This theme is concerned with realising the dividends that come from much closer integration between innovation in electrical machine design and advanced manufacturing methods.

Grand Challenge 2

Process innovation, monitoring and simulation

This theme is focused on the numerous processes that underpin electrical machine manufacture. The research will draw heavily on modelling and simulation to explore the influence of current and emerging processes on final machine performance.

Cross cutting themes

A central thread of activity linking our research outputs

Cross cutting (X) themes underpin our Grand Challenge (GC) themes. Each GC theme incorporates elements each of the X themes in order to develop a deeper understanding and maximise FEMM Hub outputs.
