Electric drive systems, which include electric machines and power electronics, are a key enabling technology for advanced vehicle propulsion systems that reduce the petroleum dependence of the ground transportation sector. To have significant effect, electric drive technologies must be economical in terms of cost, weight, and size while meeting performance(More)
There has been growing interest in electrical machines that reduce or eliminate rare-earth material content. Traction applications are among the key applications where reducing cost and, hence, reduction of rare-earth materials are key requirements. This paper will assess the potential of different variants of flux-switching machines (FSMs) that either(More)
Interior permanent magnet (PM) machines are considered the state of the art for traction motors, particularly in light-duty hybrid and electrical vehicles. These motors usually use neodymium-iron-boron (NdFeB) PMs. These magnets include both light rare-earth materials such as neodymium (Nd) as well as heavy rare-earth materials such as dysprosium (Dy). The(More)
This paper examines the impact of the winding layer number (single- and double-layer), and magnet type (sintered and bonded), as well as slot/pole combinations on AC stator losses in surface permanent magnet (SPM) synchronous machines equipped with fractional-slot concentrated windings that are designed for wide speed ranges of constant-power operation. It(More)
Direct-drive generators are appealing candidates for some wind energy conversion systems (WECS) since they provide a means of eliminating the gearbox from the drivetrain. However, a fundamental problem associated with these machines is their large size that makes them difficult to manufacture, transport, and assemble. This paper introduces the concept of(More)
For many applications in the field of Image Processing, it is desirable to have an efficient, sparse representation of information, in particular for computational cost reasons. Image representation is a critical part of real-time processing of images with applications in Underwater Imaging 1 , Object detection and defense applications. This paper tries to(More)
While interior permanent magnet (IPM) machines have been considered the state-of-the art for traction motors, synchronous reluctance (SynRel) motors with advanced materials can provide a competitive alternative. IPM machines typically utilize neodymium iron boron permanent magnets, which pose an issue in terms of price, sustainability, demagnetization at(More)
