Research Profile

Jan Schellekens is Assistant Professor in the Electromechanics and Power Electronics group of the Department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). In this part-time position, Schellekens focuses on lecturing and supervising PhD students. He spends his other working hours as System Architect at Applied Micro Electronics B.V. His research interests while working on his PhD were the power, control and sensor technologies needed to improve existing power amplifiers. Currently, Schellekens is focused on power electronics for high-precision applications, the design and application of industrial linear motors, linear and planar motors for high-precision systems, electric drive systems and control design. At ASML, Schellekens and colleagues designed a liquid-cooled zero-voltage switching servo amplifier for a planar positioning system with nanometer accuracy.  Schellekens has contributed to 13 conference papers and 3 peer-reviewed scholarly articles.

Academic Background

Jan Schellekens received his BE degree in Electrical Engineering from Fontys University of Applied Sciences in 2002 and his MSc degree in Electrical Engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 2007. He worked as Design Engineer at Prodrive B.V. from 2001 to 2006 and at ASML from 2007-2009.  Schellekens joined Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) as PhD candidate in 2009. After obtaining his PhD in 2014, he stayed on as part-time Assistant Professor while also taking a position as System Architect at Applied Micro Electronics (AME).
