“I will start at a wind turbine manufacturer in China after my defence, to put my research into practice”

PhD Candidate Xuezhou Wang will obtain his doctorate on Monday 19th June with his thesis Modeling and Design of Brushless Doubly-Fed Induction Machines on the disadvantages and solutions in our current machines for wind turbine applications. He worked on the electromagnetic design of a special electrical machine with complicated electromagnetic coupling. He was supervised by Domenico Lahaye (Numerical Analysis) and Henk Polinder (DC systems, Energy conversion & Storage).

Mathematical models for healing burns

Daniël Koppenol, together with Fred Vermolen (both TU Delft), has developed various mathematical models to simulate the healing of wounds, in particular burns, with the aim of improving healing. As Vermolen points out, collaboration between the disciplines of mathematics, biology and medicine is still in its infancy, but it would offer great opportunities. Koppenol has been awarded a PhD for this work at TU Delft on Thursday, 15 June.
