Message from the General Chair
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 5th IEEE Workshop on Electrical Machine Design, Control and Diagnosis, (WEMDCD 2021), from April 8 to April 9, 2021. WEMDCD is sponsored by IEEE-IES Industrial Electronics Society and IEEE-IAS Industry Applications Society and has now set the tradition of an international workshop where up-to-date research activities in electrical machines and drives are presented. Every two years, we bring together a multidisciplinary group of researchers, engineers, and scientists to present and exchange breakthrough ideas.
The last one has been a very challenging year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. With the safety and wellbeing of our participants as our top priority, WEMDCD 2021—originally planned to be held in Modena, Italy—has been converted to a fully virtual conference. To provide maximum flexibility for the participants, the WEMDC 2021 virtual conference program includes live streaming oral presentations as well as recorded presentations displayed in live-interactive poster sessions, where the authors will have the opportunity to quick introduce their work and being engaged in Q&A sessions. Two poster sessions are also sponsored by European funded projects under the framework of Horizon 2020 programme: AUTO-MEA and DORNA which make us very proud.
The 2021 edition will have a focus on automotive and transport applications and will include a significant number of invited contributions from researchers working in academia and in R&D in the industry sector. A special thanks in this sense goes to the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia – UniMORE and MUNER – The Motorvehicle University of Emilia-Romagna, which made possible to organize four plenary talks on the challenges in the electrification of the transportation sector, from Andrea Pontremoli – CEO and General Manager Dallara, Nicholas Hale – Technology Director, Advanced Drivetrain Off-Highway CNH Industrial, Mykhaylo Filipenko – Former Director Center of Competence Electric Machines “Higher Power” Rolls-Royce Electric and Prof. Chris Gerada – Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellor University of Nottingham, UK. We are extremely fortunate to have these four distinguished leaders from industry and the scientific community to share their wisdom and visions with us.
We would like to express our utmost gratitude to the members of the WEMDCD 2021 Organization Committee, the International Steering Committee, and the IEEE MCE team, who have made this event possible through their hard teamwork, selfless dedication, and numerous extra hours dealing with the fluid situation of the pandemic. We would like to thank our silver sponsor, Raw Power srl and Siboni Srl as well as The Emilia-Romagna region and City of Modena for their generous support. We would like to thank each and every one of you, whether you are a paper presenter, an attendee, an exhibitor, a volunteer, or any combination of the above, for your contribution and participation.
Once again, We sincerely welcome you to WEMDCD 2021 and please enjoy the exciting virtual conference program.
