This training course is intended to present a generalized analytical approach for the modelling and analysis of electro-magneto-mechanical devices, including a general approach for the magnetic analysis of radial-flux (long-drum-type) rotary machines. Both methods were developed at the University of Pisa and have been successfully applied to a wide range of cases for both theoretical qualitative analysis and “numeralitical” quantitative analysis. The course aims to provide an introduction to such modelling methods, highlighting their potential with respect to more conventional approaches widely used in academia and industry. The analytical considerations will be illustrated also by means of simple numerical examples, including FE models, which will permit a critical analysis in order to assess the validity and limits of the proposed approach. The possible numerical implementation by means of scripting will be also illustrated, highlighting the potential of mid-level “numeralitical” models in terms of accuracy vs. computational burden in comparison to FE. A practical application example related to a common machine type will be finally presented.


This course is intended for anybody interested in the modelling, analysis and ultimately design of electric machines and electro-magneto-mechanical devices in general. A basic background in electrical engineering, particularly on electromagnetics, circuits and materials properties, will be then assumed. A basic background in mathematics, particularly on calculus and vector analysis, will be also assumed, as well as a basic knowledge of computational software (e.g. Matlab, Python) and Finite Element software. However, the instructors will gladly provide clarifications upon request, both during the scheduled time slots and even on the side.

Paolo Bolognesi Paolo Bolognesi, Senior Researcher and Appointed Professor at University of Pisa
Paolo Bolognesi received from the University of Pisa his M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering cum laude and his Ph.D. in Automation and Industrial Robotics with Power Electronics curriculum in 1995 and 1999 respectively. After a period spent as Research Associate, in 2001 he joined the University of Pisa as a tenure track Research Fellow. Since 2004 he is a Senior Researcher and Appointed Professor in Electric Machines, Power Electronics and Electrical Drives at the same University. His main research interests are on the concept, analytical and numerical modeling, analysis, design and control of electric machines and power converters, also using unconventional topologies and innovative materials and manufacturing techniques, for different applications such as industry, automotive, aerospace.
Lucas Papini Luca Papini, Research Fellow and Appointed Professor at University of Pisa
Luca Papini received the Bachelor (Hons.) and Master (Hons.) degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Pisa, Italy, in 2009 and 2011 respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering with focus on solid rotor induction motors in 2018 from the University of Nottingham, UK. He was a Research Assistant with the University of Nottingham since 2013 and a JSPS Fellow in 2018. He is currently a Research Fellow and Appointed Professor in Electric Machines, Power Electronics and Electrical Drives at the University of Pisa. His research interests include analytical modelling of electric machines, high-speed, high power density electric machines, machine control, and levitating systems.


Licensing & Computers

JMAG, Matlab and Python will be used for examples. The participants will then benefit from having such software available, eventually using temporary licenses for the first 2 whereas Python is free.
