CMI Project 2.1.3 Systems level modeling and prototyping

This project will use systems level modeling and prototyping as means for developing alternatives or substitutes for rare earth elements (REE). This includes developing new designs/topologies that enable reduced use of permanent magnets, hence their REE contents. It also includes modifying existing designs such that newly developed or recycled magnets can be used to meet performance requirements. Therefore, this approach offers both the opportunity to reduce the critical REE contents of permanent magnets and the avenue for deploying lower-performing, cost-effective magnets.
