This project will assess the possibility to reduce cost and reduce the environmental impact by avoiding rare-earth metals and replace cupper with aluminium as conductors in the electric machines. These replacements come with a cost, and that is the power density and the risk of reduced efficiency. Participants in the project are Emma Grunditz and Torbjörn Thiringer.
