Description: Description: solar cells

Description: Description: TeslaThe invention of the wheel was perhaps rather obvious; but the invention of an invisible wheel, made of nothing but a magnetic field, was far from obvious, and that is what we owe to Nikola Tesla.

Reginald Kapp, 1956


OUR GOAL is to perform research in the area of electric machinery and power electronics. It is our goal to explore new electric machines and motor drives topologies for various applications. These applications may vary from new motor drive topologies for computer hard disks to electric vehicles. This laboratory is equipped with various state of the art equipment and is growing.
