Electrification of road vehicles is one of the most consistent initiatives to achieve a clean, environmentally friendly and efficient transport system. The choice of the electric machine for the powertrain is an important consideration, nowadays tilted towards permanent magnet synchronous machines. However, rare earth permanent magnet supply drawbacks open up new prospects for other types of machines, such as switched reluctance machines (SRM). This Workshop, Switched reluctance motor drives an alternative for E-traction, aims to deepen into the potential of SRM for electric traction, to be a meeting point for groups that are currently working on the development of SRM drives and an opportunity to establish future collaborations. The Workshop consists of two parts. In the first part, participants will present papers about issues related with switched reluctance machines for electric traction applications. In the second part, they will discuss what aspects slow down the application of SRM drives for electric traction and their possible solutions.
