We advance the state of the art in electrification, creating technologies for more efficient, versatile, and resilient power electronics systems, and shaping the technology leaders of tomorrow that will pave the way towards the zero emissions society.
The Power Electronics Lab (PELe) is part of the Electromechanics and Power Electronics (EPE) group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Power Electronics is a technology that is key to the envisioned, and largely ongoing, transition towards the use of clean electrical energy in all aspects of modern life, addressing the societal need for a carbon-free energy future. Power Electronics systems are omnipresent in the electrification of traditionally carbon-intensive industries, as well as in the production and effective integration into the grid of abundant amounts of renewable energy. These systems offer solutions that bring flexibility to energy producers and consumers, as well as increased productivity and energy efficiency. However, in an ever changing energy landscape, they are also faced with increasingly demanding requirements in terms of high efficiency, high precision, low cost and lower footprint. These are coupled with the expectation for reliability and resilience that matches, if not surpasses, the one exhibited by today’s traditional solutions – a big challenge for an incoming technology. The PELe team is working on these critical aspects surrounding modern Power Electronics, supporting the further penetration of this technology into our daily lives, striving to accelerate our transition to the carbon-free energy future.
