Professional Experience

Dr. Konrad Woronowicz defines and co-ordinates R&D efforts in emerging special transportation technologies. He has been with Bombardier for over 21 years developing the next generation of electric traction linear drives, contactless power transfer technologies and permanent magnet magnetic gear motors. He has authored and co-authored numerous patents and papers in an area of WPT, Linear Motors, Power Converter Controls and Electromagnetic Design. He received his doctoral degree in adaptive motor control from the West Pomeranian University of Technology. In addition to electric drives and wireless power transfer, he conducts research in such areas as energy storage, EMC and high output resonant converters. He is an adjunct professor at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology.

He has participated in a number of transportation projects such as: Augsburg Primove Tram; New York JFK AirTrain; Braunschweig Primove Bus; Vancouver SkyTrain; Kuala Lumpur LRT II; Ankara Metro; New York Metro; Las Vegas Monorail; Sao Paulo Monorail; Beijing ART; Seoul LIM System; The King Abdullah Financial District Transit System; Riyadh Metro among others. Currently, he is involved in the development of the control architecture for autonomous, magnetically guided vehicles as well as computational problems of very high speed linear motors.
