Funding: 2007: $47,000
2008: $45,000
2009: $43,000

Project Member(s): Zhu, J., Liu, D., Guo, Y.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Discovery Projects)

Start year: 2007

Summary: The traditional electrical machine design is on component level and depends largely on experiences even when sophisticated numerical methods are employed. This project aims at a conceptual revolution to develop an application-oriented system level optimum design method for advanced drive systems. New and accurate system models that couple motors, converter/inverters and control schemes, and effective numerical methods for coupled field analysis and system design optimisation will be developed and implemented. The outcomes will enable effective development of innovative smart appliances by providing application-oriented low cost high performance drive systems and greatly strengthen the competitiveness of Australian industry in world market.
