Welcome

IEEE-WEMDCD'2017

Following the success of the first two Workshops on Electrical Machines Design, Control and Diagnosis (WEMDCD) in Paris (2013) and Torino (2015), the University of Nottingham is proud to be hosting WEMDCD 2017 in Nottingham, UK. The aim of  WEMDCD 2017 is to give an insight into emerging new techniques related to electrical machines design, control and diagnosis.

 
Industrial electrical machines remain a key component for modern systems using, producing or transforming electricity. Nowadays, they are associated with innovation and a major focus of both industry and academia, for modern applications, is exploring potential to save energy and/or to reduce pollution.

WEMDCD 2017 will include a significant number of invited contributions from researchers working in academia and in R&D in the industry sector. These will include papers related, but not limited, to the following topics, with special focus on Industrial and Transport Applications:
 
Electrical Machines Design: Switched Reluctance Machines, Induction Machines, Permanent Magnet, Synchronous Machines, High Speed Machines, Synchronous Reluctance Machines, Linear Machines, Fractional Slot Machines, Universal Motors, Actuators, Wound-Field Synchronous Generators, Permanent Magnet Generators

Electrical Machines and Drives Control: Advanced Control Techniques, Vector Control, Direct Torque Control, Multiphase Machines, Fault-Tolerant Permanent Magnet Machines, Fault-Tolerant Induction Machines, Sensorless Induction Machine Drives, Sensorless Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine Drives

Electrical Drives Diagnosis and Health Monitoring: Digital Signal Processing Techniques for Diagnosis, Diagnosis of Rolling Elements, Bearings Faults, Diagnosis of Rotor Faults, Diagnosis of Eccentricity, Diagnostic Techniques in Non-Stationary Conditions, Power Supply Failures, Diagnosis of Stator Faults, Fault Diagnosis by Space Vector Analysis, Monitoring of Insulation Systems, Life-time Prediction Methods of Machines and Drives.
