The focus of the EPE group can be split into two research directions, namely electromechanics and power electronics
The research efforts in Electromechanics are mainly focused on the novel multifunctional electromagnetic and electromechanical system solutions (over-actuated, non-periodic, non- or quasi-symmetrical, re-configurable structures) for high-tech precision technology (for different motion profiles), medical technology, advanced robotics and automotive concepts in a close cooperation with (inter)national industrial and academical partners. The uniqueness of the obtained achievements is provided by the strong synergy of the theoretically and experimentally verified innovative results.
The research efforts in Power Electronics are mainly focused on the design of converters for efficient sustainable energy systems. The converters are constantly improved in performance, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. The designed converters are used in the high-tech precision technology, medical technology, advanced robotics and automotive concepts in a close cooperation with (inter)national industrial and academical partners.
