Research field: Electrical energy

The research field electrical energy focuses on the areas motor systems and potential evaluation.

Details on the research field

The research field electrical energy deals with energy efficiency in electrical systems. It consists of the following research areas: motor systems and potential evaluation.

Motor Systems

In the research area "motor systems", GREES deals with energy efficiency in electric motor driven systems. At the moment, three research projects are active in this area. These projects focus on ventilators, pumps and compressors. One research project has been concluded. Overlaps to the second research area do exist.

Potential Evalutaion

In the research area "potential evaluation", GREES deals with the evaluation of potentials for example for energy efficient technologies. Right now, there are no PhD projects in this area, but three research projects have already been concluded. These researchs includes communication technologies, energy savings potential curves and plasma activated surfaces.
