The E-Mobility and Industrial Drives research programme is based on design and control of electric machines and power electronic converters. The interaction with the source power, e.g. utility grid or batteries, and the mechanical load is also an important part of the research. Applications include industrial drives like fans and pumps and emerging electro-mobile applications as drones and electric vehicles.
The research programme has a strong industrial focus and often serves as a platform for proof of concept. We work in close partnership with leading companies and research institutions within our focus areas in order to reduce cost and to improve the efficiency, compactness, performance, etc. of the components and applications of interest.
