We want to remain the academic frontrunner in sustainable energy conversion systems in the Netherlands
Electromechanical technologies and devices of all sizes are part of all areas of society. These devices need to meet increasingly stringent demands for precision, efficiency and sustainability. The Electromechanics and Power Electronics group researches the energy conversion theory, methods and technology needed to build electromechanical devices that live up to that challenge.
To do this, we closely collaborate with national and international industrial and academical partners. Together, we create prototypes at high technology readiness level (TRL) and work on many projects co-funded by industry. We work on widely disseminating our results, so partners in our extensive national, European and world-wide network can apply them in their designs.
