received his Ph.D. from Texas A&M University.
His research interests include:
the design and performance analysis of novel and
conventional machines and of power conditioned drives
for electrical machines and the analysis of
electromechanical actuators for robotic applications.
Present research activities include torque pulsations
in brushless DC motor drives, cycloconverter
link brushless DC motor drives, helical motion motors,
loss minimization of inverter driven induction motors
and power electronics for linear brushless DC drives.
Dr. Syed A. Nasar
Professor and Chairman; received his Ph.D. from
the University of California at Berkeley.
His research is primarily in the area of linear motors
and electric machines.
His current thrust of research lies in the areas of
linear alternators, electromagnetic launchers,
switched reluctance motors and electric drives.
He is a Fellow of the IEEE and a Fellow of the IEE (London).
Dr. Frederick C. Trutt
Professor; received his Ph.D.
degree from the University of Delaware.
His areas of research include power systems and electric machines.
Recent investigations have included projects to
develop techniques to improve existing capabilities
to detect three-phase squirrel-cage induction motor failures,
and to design and develop an experimental coordination-free
ground fault protection indicator for distribution of
alternating current in underground mines.
Dr. Arthur V. Radun
received his PhD degree from the Massachusetts
Instutute of Technology. His research interests include
power electronic converters, solid-state switching devices,
and electromagnetic analysis of electric machines.
His present research activity is in high performance
converters and switched reluctance machines for
aircraft electrical systems.
