Research interests

The central theme of Dr Flack’s research interests is the development of finite element methods for the analysis of problems in electromagnetics. Current projects within this theme are:

  • Development of a generalised time-stepping eddy current solver for the analysis of the brushless doubly-fed generator for wind power applications.
  • Modelling of electrical machines and electrical power systems integrated starter motor/alternators for mild hybrid electric vehicles.
  • Development of an integrated modelling environment for electromagnetic gearboxes and electromagnetically-geared electrical machines.
  • Development of finite-element code for micromagnetic simulations for application in magnetic computing.

Integrated modeller for the simulation of combined circuit and electromagnetic problems for the development of high-efficiency power switched-mode power supplies.

Strategic themes

Energy, transport and urban infrastructure

Automotive electrical power systems for mild hybrid vehicles in collaboration with Jaguar Land Rover.
