(07-11-2018) The 23rd edition of the International Conference on Electrical Machines (ICEM) was held from 3-6 September in Alexandropouli in Greece. PhD student Lynn Verkroost was granted the best student poster award.

The poster of doctoral student Lynn Verkroost (EA08) was titled ‘Active Fault Compensation Based on Online Reconfiguration of Modular Axial Flux Drives’. Lynn Verkroost presented with the poster the global approach within her research.

 

 

 

 

The master thesis explained:
“Sustainable energy applications require electrical machines with high reliability, even under extreme circumstances. Due to their high efficiency, low weight, numerous degrees of freedom and inherent redundancy, modular axial flux permanent magnet synchronous machines are perfectly suitable for this purpose. In this project, it will be investigated how the additional degrees of freedom of this modular machine can be used efficiently, in order to increase its reliability, i.e. to keep it operating in case of defects. The main focus will be on the online reconfiguration of the stator winding connections and the current through these windings.”
