Research Interests

Dr Soulard's research focus is within modelling and design of electric machines especially permanent magnet synchronous motors and generators. This expertise includes:

  • Impact of manufacturing on electric machines performances
  • Losses and thermal modelling of electric machines
  • Finite-element simulation of electric machines
  • Design tools for PM machines
  • Three-phase line-start permanent magnet synchronous motors
  • Field-weakening of permanent magnet motors
  • Concentrated windings applied to direct-driven drive systems
  • Fractional-conductor windings for large AC machines
  • Soft magnetic composites in electric machines
  • Transverse-flux machines


Dr Juliette Soulard joined WMG in September 2016 as Associate Professor, Electric Machines working within the Advanced Propulsion Systems Group. Under the guidance of Professor Richard McMahon, she is the academic leader of the Electric Machines research.

Prior to this, she was based at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden for 18 years where she led research within the Electrical Machines and Drives Laboratory (eMaDlab) covering a range of applications from renewable energy generation to electrified transport systems. From 1999, she was the research programme leader for the Permanent Magnet Drives group within the Centre of Excellence of Power Engineering (EKC) and from 2006, she led the High Performance Electrical Machines and Drives research programme (EKC2). Dr Soulard became a Senior Lecturer at KTH in 2009, and in 2014, she was selected to be the faculty educational developer for the School of Electrical Engineering.

Dr Soulard studied Electrical Engineering at the École Normale Supérieure de Cachan in France and obtained her doctorate in Electrical Engineering in 1998 from University of Paris VI under the guidance of Professor Bernard Multon.

The best place to get an overview of previous published work is via her Google Scholar profile due to multiple employers.
