Instructor: Ramon J. Figueroa, MSME, PE, EdD

In this two hour course, the engineer will learn about the research of enabling compact, reliable electric machines, material performance and conductivity, and increased accuracy of key parameters. Electric motors power machines that are evolving, and so, electric motors must also become more compact, reliable, and efficient. Electrical motor improvements include improvements in material thermal conductivity and thus, mechanical power. This course explores new material performance characterization techniques that can help improve the thermal resistance and conductivity of electric motor components.

Engineers taking this course will explore new techniques for measuring and thus improving material performance in electric motors. This allows engineers to begin developing improvements in motor base materials, epoxies, fillers, magnets, and insulators. This course also introduces engineers to new physics-based models that make room for further model improvements. Engineers who take this course are introduced to concepts on the leading edge of electric motor innovation.
