Transport industry is facing a paradigm shift towards the most promising and sustainable solution represented by the transportation electrification. This concept has not only been adopted for the propulsion power trains, but also for the auxiliary systems. Indeed, in the last few decades electrification has come to smart actuators to
improve both safety and comfort of the passengers. In this contest, multiphase electrical machines and drives represent a promising solution to satisfy the challenging requirements imposed by the applications, such as reduced weight and volume, high efficiency, low vibrations and noise, robustness and fault tolerance.
