Welcome to the Department of Power Electronics
The core of our teaching and research are active and passive components for the development and operation of electrical power systems, both stationary and mobile in electric vehicles.
In addition to research on magnetic components, the department is also involved in the study of wide bandgap semiconductors, novel topology approaches for inverter systems and DC/DC converters.
With a staff of between 10 and 15 people in the department Power Electronics and close cooperation with the departments of Energy Management and Operation of Electrical Networks (e2n), and the employees of the Fraunhofer IEE (FG INES), a powerful research focus has been developed at the University of Kassel in the field of energy supply. This makes it possible to offer both good research opportunities and broad-based study content.
Further information on the cooperation of the four departments can be found on the website of the superordinate KDEE, the Competence Center for Decentralized Electrical Energy Supply Systems
