Welcome to the lab for Power Electronics and Control of Drives

Power electronic systems convert electrical energy by means of fast switching semiconductors. Our research deals with the interaction of power electronic converters with the electrical grid as well as the control of electrical machines. Both are important research fields for ensuring a stable and sustainable energy supply.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gerd Griepentrog

"Power electronics is absolutely versatile, in the direction of an electrotechnical decathlon! It is fascinating how large amounts of energy can be efficiently converted in a highly dynamical and precise way by a power electronic converter and its software."
