In our field, it is very important to be able to experimentally verify simulation results. Therefore, we have large and well equipped laboratory facilities, which are not only used for research activities, but also for the education of our students. Laboratory classes are always a highly appreciated activity at E2C.
The laboratory for electrical motors and power electronics is equipped as follows:
- 7 student benches equipped with DSP-controlled motors.
- 10 research places for PhD students and senior researchers.
- Real-time simulator, climate chamber, test cell for high-speed motor measurements, motor test rigs, mechanical workshop.
- DC power supplies up to 700V or 375A or 75kW.
- AC power supplies up to 760V or 470 A or 360kVA or 500Hz.
- Torque balances up to 800Nm or 3750rpm.
