David Gerada received the Ph.D. degree in high-speed electrical machines from University of Nottingham, UK, in 2012. From 2007-2016 he was with the R&D Department at Cummins Inc. At Cummins he pioneered the design and development of high speed electrical machines, transforming a challenging technology into a reliable one suitable for the transportation market, and establishing industry-wide used metrics for such machinery. In 2016 he joined the University of Nottingham where he is currently a Principal Research Fellow, responsible for developing state of the art electrical machines for future transportation which push existing technology boundaries, while propelling the new technologies to high technology readiness levels (TRL). His research interests include novel materials and applications in electromechanical energy conversion, traction machines, mechatronics, etc. Dr. Gerada is a Chartered Engineer in U.K.
To meet the ambitious transport net zero emissions criteria a new generation of electrical machines with unprecedented performance metrics is required. This lecture will firstly give an overview of the various roadmaps which exist, and subsequently will discuss the enabling electrical machine technology bricks, including materials, topologies, losses reduction, as well as advanced thermal management. Case studies from the presenter’s first-hand experience are discussed.
