“Electrical Steel Structuring, Insulating and Assembling by means of the Laser technologies (ESSIAL)”.
Financing entity: European Union (H2020, FoF 06-2017, Ref. 766437)
Participants: Ecole Superieure d’Ingenieurs en Electrotechnique et Electronique d’Amiens (France), Jeumont Electric (France), Matikem (France), Univ. Carlos III de Madrid (Spain), Euronovia (France), Centre de Recherches Metallurgiques ASBL (Belgium), Fundacion Andaltec I+D+I (Spain), Fraunhofer Gesellschaft zur Foerderung der Angewandten Forschung (Germany), Multitel (Belgium), Laser Engineering Applications (Belgium), Albatros SL (Spain), Universite de Picardie Jules Verne (France), Institut de Recherche Technologique Materiaux, Metallurgie, Procedes (France)Coordinator: Francisco J. Velasco (at UC3M) Dates: Nov 2017 – Oct 2021. Financing: 461.087,50 € Web page of the project Work at UC3M Three UC3M research groups participate in the project: Materials Performance (belonging to Materials Science and Engineering Department), Power Electronics (Electronic Technology Department) and Energy System Engineering (Thermal and Fluid Engineering Department). The multidisciplinarity of the group allows us to address studies and analysis on coatings for electric steels, polymeric materials employed during the manufacturing of transformers, and, specially, the effect of laser texturing on the corrosion resistance of materials, the protective ability of the coating, the models of magnetic and thermal losses of the components, or the construction and validation of small transformers.
