As the demand for electrical energy increases worldwide, engineers and scientists have been investigating new electrical systems and materials to meet this demand economically, having large-scale planning and employing environmentally friendly energy production and energy-efficient systems for consumption to minimize adverse environmental effects. New applications such as renewable energy production, e-mobility, and aerospace technology can be considered within the scope of this perspective. Thus, it is a necessity to establish new paradigms in the design, construction, and selection of new materials and drive systems for electric machines and transformers, where such stringent requirements, as high power density, low weight, compact size, and low cost, should be complied with. Therefore, the objective of this Special Issue is to facilitate a platform for disseminating new findings on any aspect of electric machines and transformers with certain topics of interest, including new materials used in electric machines and transformers, investigations of the performance of electric machines and transformers at dynamic state as well as at steady state, and acoustic analyses of electric machines as well as transformers due to vibrations. In this Special Issue, 11 articles address these subjects of interest.
