I. Information of the 7th Jingde Podium
Topic: Innovative Industrial Cooperation in Electrical Engineering — Opportunities and Challenges
Time: 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm, May 29, 2023
Place: 3-217, West Main Building
Guest: Professor Zhu Ziqiang
Electrical engineering is a key discipline in the global net-zero circular economy. This podium will share the experience of the University of Sheffield’s electrical engineering discipline in working with industry, mainly involving permanent magnet motor drive systems, which have been widely used in aviation, aerospace, electric vehicles, wind power generation, household appliances, industrial automation and other industries. The lecture will focus on the development trend of new motors, power electronic converters and control systems. Based on many practical examples of the University of Sheffield’s collaboration with industry, the lecture will also illustrate how bridging the gap between basic research and industrial applications can drive the harmonious development of technology and industry.
