Intertech Announces June Motor Design Seminar

April 06, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

Intertech Corp. (Portland, ME) announced the date for its automotive component design seminar, "Designing Actuators, Motors and Generators for Automotive Applications," which will be held June 18-19, 2003. The seminar will take place at the Messe Berlin in Berlin, Germany, and is aimed at professionals involved in any way with automotive component design - or with the selection, planning, procurement or application of vehicular electrical systems.

The conference will provide attendees with extensive detail on designing permanent magnet (ferrite, rare earth); switched reluctance; synchronous; and induction electric motors, including dc and brushless dc motors, starters and starter-alternators. Attendees will develop skills to assess the advantages and disadvantages of competing motor designs used for ICE, hybrid-electric, electric and fuel cell vehicles, as well as for auxiliary motors used throughout the vehicle. New areas, such as 42V systems and finite element modeling will also be highlighted.
