The Institute of Energy Systems and Electrical Drives focuses on the energetic, economic and ecological optimal use of various primary energy carriers for providing services in the end use fields of electricity, heat and transport as well as on drive engineering including design control and fault detection of electrical machines and their drives.

The institute covers – in research and teaching – the whole range from analyzing global energy systems to investigating optimal solutions for power systems including power plants and grids to specific applications of technologies like electric drives and power electronics for transport and CHP solutions for the building sector.

Finally, our objective is – considering optimal solutions in the whole energy chain incl. supply, generation, transmission, distribution and also interactions in energy markets as well as conversion into energy services – to contribute to shape the transition of our energy system into a sustainable one.
