During your assignment, you will create analytic/FE-based models of electrical machines, with a special focus on electromagnetic and thermal design.
Optimization of novel electrical machine topologies for a prospective conductor material based on carbon nanotubes and/or graphene, targeting future-oriented applications such as electric vehicles and aircraft electrification belongs to your area of responsibility.
Your task includes also benchmarking resulting designs with state-of-the-art electric machines, with a particular emphasis on the influence of conductor material.
Last but not least, you will document the results in a structured way, followed by regular presentation and discussion of your work.
Education: Master studies in the field of Electrical Engineering or comparable; ideally with specialization in electrical machines
