About the book

With growing concerns about more efficient energy systems with modern energy conversion systems and increased penetration of renewable energy sources, more attention has been paid to the development of new topologies for electric machines and drives to meet the needs of stakeholders, especially the industrial needs with new applications from the perspective of speed, operational capability, performance, efficiency, maintenance, lifetime, flexibility, control, torque value, and power density, cost, and robustness.

The main focus of this book is to present and discuss in detail the configuration, characteristics, operation and control strategies, merits, demerits, and potential applications of electric machines such as robotics, aircraft, ships, electric vehicles (EVs), wind turbines, smart unmanned systems, modern smart appliances, and other recent energy conversion system perspectives. In conclusion, this book aims to introduce good practice with new research outcomes, and ideas that connect to-date, and emerging roles of electric machines and drives for modern power grids.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Maja Bozicevic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
