ECM's Chris Fielding To Speak on The Future of Electric Motors at MDSM 2024
Fielding will illustrate how disruptive innovation and shifting market demands will reshape the design, production, and performance of electric machines.
Needham, Mass – Chris Fielding, VP for Application Engineering US electric motor design and software company ECM PCB Stator Tech, will speak at the 2024 Motor Drive Systems and Magnetics Conference (MDSM) in Orlando, Florida on Wed., Feb. 14, at 1:30pm.
MDSM is the world's leading conference and expo focused on the latest technical advancements in motors, drive systems, motion control, magnetic applications, and rare earth materials.
In a keynote session titled, “The Future of Electric Motors: Demand in The Billions, Regulatory Mandates, and Design Optimization”, Fielding will present a deep dive into coming electric motor market movements, technology, and design innovation.
Macro trends—such as mass electrification and automation—are pushing global demand for specialized electric motors to over a billion units annually in a sector projected to reach over $300 billion in annual value.
Analysts project this booming electric motor need will occur in a long list of verticals: HVAC equipment, e-mobility, consumer electronics, household appliances, robotics, medical devices, aerospace, defense, and unmanned vehicles.
Another force influencing the future of electric motors is the push for more sustainable design and performance. With an eye on energy savings, large economic blocks (such as the US and EU) continue to advance design legislation to mandate electric motor efficiency. That is largely motivated by the fact that outdated electric motor systems account for over 50 percent of the world’s electricity consumption, while contributing significantly to carbon emissions.
This all comes together to present a critical question. How to satisfy the needs of a world projected to demand billions of electric motors annually—with very specific design and sustainability requirements—across hundreds of verticals?
From this context, ECM's VP for Application Engineering Chris Fielding will offer valuable insight on the following:
The Eletric Motor Market: Now and Forward
- Drivers of Demand Regulatory Pressures
- Why Past Practices Won’t Power The Future
Conventional vs. Disruptive Design
- Tech and Innovation Snapshot
- Axial Flux vs. Radial Flux
- Copper Wound vs. PCB Stator
Meeting 21st Century Demand and Design Optimization
- Achieving Precise Form Factor and Spec Requirements
- Ecodesign Mandates and How to Comply
- Controllers and Total System Efficiency
- Why Advanced Motor CAD and SaaS Offer the Solution
