Motor applications are expanding rapidly. A typical automobile built today has hundreds of electric motors and electromechanical sensors and actuators. At high power levels, motors drive electric and hybrid cars, trucks, buses, ships, mining equipment, and other forms of transportation. The CEME supports projects that expand the usefulness of electric machines and electromechanical devices, and seeks to promote new ideas for high-performance applications, including hybrid power systems for aircraft, electric vehicle charging for utility grid benefits, and other aspects of transportation electrification. Our students continue to lead in developing, maximizing output, minimizing losses, and detecting and diagnosing faults in transportation drive systems.
