SHORT biography

Florin Jurca was born in 1980 in Abrud, Romania. In 2004 he received the BSc degree in Electromechanics from the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca and he graduated MSc in Electrical Engineering and received the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the same university in 2005 and 2009 respectively. Since 2007 he is member of the teaching staff of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at Technical University of Cluj-Napoca. He is currently Lecturer with the Department of Electrical Machines and Drives of the same university and he is responsible of Electromechanical Systems 1 course and of practical applications at Electrical machines 1 and Special Electrical Machines disciplines.


Electromechanical Systems I is dedicated to the 4th year Electromechanics Specialization students. During the course, the functional blocks of several types of electromechanical systems (automotive, renewable resources, industrial robots, machine tools) and their monitoring techniques are presented and discussed.


Design and modelling of the special electrical machines

    - permanent synchronous machine in radial and axial flux construction

    - flux transversal machine (claw-pole, modular topology)

    - synchronous reluctance machine (SyRM) and switched reluctance machine (SRM)

Development and analysis of electromechanical systems in the automotive industry

    - electrical machines for (powertrain, steering, etc ) electric and hybrid vehicles

    - auxiliary systems

Development of electromechanical systems integrated in the renewable energy systems

    - development of turbine generators

    - development of vertical axis wind turbine with magnetic levitation
