The FEMM Hub delivered two successful training courses in June. Delivering these sessions online allowed our partners to join from locations across the UK, Europe and beyond.
The first session titled “AC Power Losses” took place on Monday 13th of June at 10am and was delivered by Hub Director, Professor Geraint Jewell (University of Sheffield) and Dr Rafal Wrobel (Newcastle University) who works on GC1.1. The session covered key issues of AC conductor loss, from fundamentals of the electromagnetic mechanisms at play through to practical strategies for minimising the magnitude of losses. The training was very well received by participants.
The second session took place on Monday 20th of June at 1pm titled “Manufacturing Opportunities for Future Electrical Machines. This session was jointly delivered by Dr Jill Miscandlon (AFRC) and Dr Lloyd Tinkler and colleagues at the AMRC. The popular session introduced novel manufacturing routes which have been used for the manufacture of non-active components in electrical machines.
