|Alternative fuels for an energy and environmental transition|
|The majority of global energy needs are provided by fossil fuels. They are limited and non-renewable sources. For instance, transportation sector is depending on fossil fuels for more than 95% all over the world. The continuous use of these fuels generates serious problems of air pollution and causes the emission and accumulation of greenhouse gases. It is becoming urgent to develop new and alternative fuels (biodiesel, bioethanol, biogas, syngas, natural gas, etc.). The keynote addresses some progress in the development of these solutions and the challenges to be tackled.|

|Design and modeling aspects of small wind turbines realization|
|Renewable energy is an important area of activities of developed countries. Many research centers are looking for new solutions for obtaining energy from renewable sources. Another important area of action is to improve the efficiency of existing solutions such as the use of the latest construction materials, and new better control algorithms or modification of generator designs. A new tendency in modern societies is the direction of development associated with production electricity directly by the final recipient, which becomes a prosumer. The keynote concerns selected aspects of the design and modeling of small wind turbines and the realization of laboratory tests.|

|Control and Applications of Multi-phase Machines|
Multiphase machines are gaining an increasing popularity due to their advantages over three-phase machines, e.g. reduced per phase power rating, improved reliability, and increased degrees of freedom. Compared with three-phase AC drives, variable speed multiphase drives provide a higher power range by utilizing low-power switching devices, due to the higher number of inverter phase legs and higher torque density. These properties are in particular important for applications in which power supply voltage is limited, torque oscillation amplitude decrease is necessary, and/or greater fault tolerant ability is required. Indeed, the fault-tolerance capability is one of the most attractive properties of multiphase machines for industrial applications. This especially includes drive systems with high reliability in non-stop operation conditions that are known for high economical and safety repercussions caused by fault occurrence, e.g. in electrical vehicles, traction, ship propulsion, and other safety-critical applications such as electrical helicopters.
The workshop will deliver the base knowledge on multiphase induction motor drives. The mathematical model, exemplary motor constructions, drive control methods including speed sensorless control, multi-phase voltage inverter control and furthermore the operation in faulty states will be shown
