The 21st century is called as °»the century of environment°…. The people are anxious to change from mass-production, mass-consumption society to sustainable one. In the field of electrical engineering, it is essential for further efficient energy generation, transportation, conversion, and usage in consideration of the environment. To realize it, the static and rotating machines and the power electronics are key technologies.
Our laboratory focuses on the development of high-efficient electric machines, and the advanced system which is composed with several static and rotating machines and power converters.
