About the Event

Contrasting the common understanding of electric machines as being a conventional, established technology, this presentation will discuss selected examples of the recent development and research activities in the field of electric machines. These include elevated temperature operating conditions, small drives for pump and fan applications and home appliances, modelling of magnetic material degradation due to cutting for electric machine design, and thermal aspects of HEV electric machine integration. The talk will include results obtained at various institutions, thereby illustrating the breadth of activities in Europe.


Annette Muetze received the dual Dipl.Ing. degree in electrical engineering from Darmstadt University of Technology, Darmstadt, Germany, the general engineering degree from the Ecole Centrale de Lyon, Ecully, France, in 1999,and the in electrical engineering from Darmstadt University of Technology, in 2004. Since 2010, she has been a full professor at Graz University of Technology, Graz, Austria, where she is the Head of the Electric Drives and Machines Institute. Prior to joining Graz, she was an Assistant Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Madison, WI, USA, and as an Associate Professor in the School of Engineering, University of Warwick, Coventry, U.K. Her research interests include the interplay of the different elements of electric drive systems, including parasitic effects, performance evaluation, design optimization, and decision-making criteria. Dr. Muetze is a Fellow of the IEEE, and has served in various roles in different IEEE Societies.
