Project Description

The PhD project aims to develop novel types of electrical machines for future transportation, e.g. electric vehicle and electric aircraft, by using the latest high temperature superconductors. Through the project, the PhD student will develop research and engineering skills in the field of electrical machine, as well as applied superconductivity. The project is ideal for engineering students who want to take an adventure to develop novel machine drives.
