MDL is at the forefront of motor design innovation and technology. We are partners on several international research funded projects and work closely with leading manufacturers.
By combining MDL’s motor design knowledge and software tools on research projects, we help advance motor technologies through to production.
Our work in the automotive and aerospace sectors has helped manufactures deliver new products to the market, such as vehicle traction motors, tail-drive motors and electric regenerative rotors for helicopters.
Examples of funded programmes we have worked on:
- Advanced Propulsion Centre UK (APC)
- Horizon 2020 (previously EU Research and Innovation Framework Programme)
- Clean Sky Joint Technology Initiative
