The mission of the Electromechanics and Power Electronics (EPE) group is to carry out fundamental research on enabling energy conversion theory, methods and technologies on which future developments in electromechanics, power electronics and motion systems are depending. The EPE group wants to remain the academic front runner in terms of sustainable energy conversion systems in the Netherlands.
In many research projects both fundamental aspects as well as practical aspects are addressed because experimental verification is essential in our field. The EPE group has a modern and versatile laboratory infrastructure to carry out experiments. A mechatronic system approach is often required, in which not only specialists from the fields of electromechanics and power electronics but also from the fields of electromagnetism, material science, control engineering, mechanical engineering and thermodynamics are involved.
More information about the EPE group can be found this flyer.
The research in the EPE group has strongly grown in the past years because of the industrial demands for innovative and energy-saving conversion systems. The research has been greatly supported by the national and international programs, such as IOP-EMVT, Point-One, FP7 and by direct industrial grants. The research in the group is carried out in four interlinked directions:
