Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The negative impact of combustion engines on global warming and greenhouse gas emissions enhances the demands for clean and green transportation systems and transport electrification at different levels—for instance, electric vehicles (EVs), electric aviation, and electric trains. The traction motors' demand metrics are mainly concentrated on high power density, high efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and light weight.

There are various ways to enhance the power density of electric motors. The most effective way to achieve high power density is increasing the slot filling factor. The practical option to achieve this target for traction applications is altering the conventional stranded winding with hairpin winding. In recent years, this winding approach has become a popular and common solution for electric motor traction applications, and various automotive manufacturers implement this winding configuration on their electric motors.

This is a call for papers for a Special Issue on the “Latest Trends in the Design of Hairpin Winding Machines for Transport Electrification Purposes”. This Special Issue will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange their latest theoretical and technological achievements and identify critical issues and challenges for future investigation in the design of electric machine drives using this winding configuration. The submitted papers are expected to raise original ideas and potential contributions to theory and practice. Topics include but are not limited to the following research areas:

  • Various manufacturing techniques of hairpin winding;
  • Design of innovative hairpin winding layouts;
  • Design hairpin winding machines;
  • Thermal management approaches for hairpin winding machines;
  • Accounting and modeling AC winding losses in hairpin winding machines.
