The research and education conducted at the Division of Electric Power and Energy Systems covers areas including electricity markets, facilitating renewable electricity generation and its integration into the system, power system dynamics, operation and control, power electronics and its application in grids, electric drives and machines and their applications in electric transportation, and resilient communication and control systems.
Electrical Machines and Drives
Electrical systems transfer electricity which is mostly produced by electric machines and consumed by electric machines (motors) in the industrial, transportation, and residential sectors.
Efficient operation of electricity markets is essential for the development of society. Integration of large amounts of renewable intermittent energy sources brings new challenges on the operation of power systems and design of electricity markets.
Power electronics deals with highly efficient and controllable conversion of electric power. It is found in renewable energy production, electricity transmission, electric transportantion, power supplies, industrial motor drives, electric energy storage and ligthting applications.
