Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


This paper overviews loss minimization methods used in induction and permanent magnet synchronous machines. Energy-saving methods used in commercial drives are discussed and their advantages and drawbacks are highlighted. Advanced methods that rely on machine parameters, physics, or both, are studied in more detail. Two examples are given to demonstrate their operation.
