In the Electromechanical Energy Conversion Laboratory (ELMEC Lab) we invest in education and research towards a carbon-free future with more efficient renewable energy sources and sustainable mobility. Since its establishment in 1974, the core research direction of ELMEC Lab has been power electronics and motor drive systems, both of which are integral, and often times inseparable parts of contemporary energy conversion systems.
Our primary interest involves the design, development, and control of power electronics topologies and dive systems (in the multi-kW range) for several state-of the art applications including but not limited to: solar power, wind turbine generators, energy storage systems, and two-/four-wheeler electric vehicles.
