Eric Severson received the 2020 National Science Foundation CAREER award! He and his research group are developing bearingless motors that will lead to new types of more efficient, more adaptable motor systems. As part of this endeavor, the Severson Research Group is working with 4-H to create open source lab kits that will allow middle and high school youth to do their own motor and magnetic bearing investigations.
The Severson Research Group is working with ARL and UW's ERC to explore using bearingless motor technology to create a new generation of electric turbochargers for aerial vehicles.September 30, 2020
