Oskar Wallmark received his M.Sc. in Engineering Physics in 2001 and his Ph.D. in Electric Power Engineering in 2006, both from Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden. In 2015, he received the Docent degree from KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Currently, he holds the position as an Associate Professor at the Department of Electric Power and Energy Systems. His main research interests include control and analysis of electric drives with particular focus on automotive applications.

Modular power electronic converters and associated modular electric machinery represents an interesting approach towards realizing very compact, integrated electric drives fulfilling the demanding requirements in terms of power and torque density that are put in automotive applications. In this presentation, the research activities at KTH towards realizing such a solution will be summarized.
