Welcome to the website of Electric Machines and Drives Laboratory at Marquette University. The purpose of this website is to provide an up-to-date information about the research activities that are taking place at Electric Machines and Drives Lab.
Electric Machines and Drives Laboratory at MU is a facility for research on modern electric machinery in adjustable speed drives, and electromechanical systems in general, including associated electromagnetic and power electronic studies and simulation model developments. The laboratory includes dynamometer facilities for testing electric machinery in modern adjustable speed drives of the induction, brushless-dc, conventional-dc, synchronous and other motors and for verification/validation of simulation results. It includes several systems with modern vector control drives of induction machines and brushless-dc machines for servo-control and aerospace applications. Computation facilities and in-house software for finite-element analysis of magnetic fields in electric machinery are included in this laboratory facility with PC based computation hardware.
