The EMTRL was established in 2001. The staffs of EMTRL are involved in research and development projects in various aspects of design and prototyping of electromagnetic devices. The main task of the laboratory is to explore new electrical machines and motor drives for various applications from computer hard disk to hybrid vehicles. The following is a brief description of active research projects at EMTRL:

·        Analytical (Fourier transforms and series, definite & indefinite integrals) and numerical (finite element modeling using ANSYS, MAXWELLl, and VECTOR FIELDS) analysis of electromagnetic devices

·        Design and prototyping of electromagnetic devices, such as electrical machines (linear and rotational) and transformers

·        Troubleshooting and maintenance of electromagnetic devices

·        Development of new devices, such as flux reversal generator, tubular and double-sided linear induction motors, high speed disk induction machine, single phase autotransformer, axial-flux disk permanent magnet

·        Development of new software for various devices, such as single phase and three phase low to high power transformers, linear and rotational electrical machines, and direct current and induction machines
