▪ Play a key role in the design and optimisation of both the preliminary and the detailed stages of new motor systems, focusing on achieving robust mechanical solutions considering manufacture from small-scale to series production
▪ Produce innovative electromagnetic, mechanical and thermal design solutions to achieve the performance requirements of electric machines.
▪ Research and develop high performance electric motor topologies and construction methods to generate high-value IP concepts enabling the next generation of motors.
▪ Present findings clearly and communicate to other team members and stakeholders.
▪ Model detailed aspects of novel motor designs and optimise their electromagnetic design
▪ Create, modify and utilise computational models to simulate motor behaviour to inform software design decisions.
