Goals and idea

Power electronics is necessary for the control of controlled electrical machines so there is a close connection between these two topics. In the Laboratory for Electrical Power Generation and Conversion, study-related internships and projects take place and application-oriented research projects are carried out in cooperation with industrial partners, research institutes and partner universities.

  • Analysis of power electronic converters
  • Analysis of electrical power networks
  • Optimization of control engineering for converters and multi-converter systems
  • Implementation of research projects
