The Research Group conducts research into:

  • Variable-speed electric drive systems
  •  Power electronic converters for renewable energy sources
  • Power electronic converters for interfacing the variable-speed drives and generators
  • Variable-speed electric drive systems for electric drives
  • Energy and battery manegement for electric vehicles

In addition to these key areas, the Group also focuses on:

• Modelling of electric machinery
• Using the principles of vector control (DTC, FOC) and model predictive control to develop control algorithms for electrical drives
• Pulse width modulation techniques for multiphase two-level and multi-level inverters
• Supply and control of multiphase variable-speed drives in open-end winding configuration
• Development of multi-motor drive systems with reduced-switch-count inverter supply
• Solutions for the integrated on-board battery charging of electric vehicles.
