Lecture: ELECTRIC VEHICLE SYSTEMS
2016-5-3

Time:May 3rd-May 7th, 2016

Venue:Taishan Research Building

Speaker: Nigel Schofield received the degrees of B.Eng. (Hons.) in Electrical Power Engineering, and Ph.D. for research on the field-weakening capability of brushless permanent-magnet traction machines, from the University of Sheffield, UK, in 1990 and 1997, respectively.  During the period 1993 to 1995 he served as a Senior Experimental Officer in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering (EEE) at the University of Sheffield, before taking up the post of Design Engineer in industry. 

From 1997 to 2001, Dr. Schofield was a post-doctoral researcher in the Electrical Machines and Drives Research Group, Dept. of EEE, University of Sheffield, and from 2001 to 2004 a Lecturer in the Dept. of EEE.  On 1 July 2004 he was appointed to a Mechatronics Lectureship in the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, at the University of Manchester, UK, and a Senior Lecturer in the School in 2009 where he lectured across all undergraduate years and on the Power Conversion M.Sc.  On 1 Jan. 2013 Dr. Schofield joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at McMaster University, Ontario, Canada, as a Full Professor with Tenure.  His research interests include electro-magnetic power-trains for all- and hybrid-electric vehicles; the vehicular application of electro-chemical and electro-static energy sources; hydrogen fuel cell systems; aerospace machines and actuators; the industrial application of electro-magnetic devices and wind generator design and renewable energy schemes.  Prof. Schofield is a Chartered Engineer and member of the UK IET and IEEE.
