Institut für Energietechnik (IET)

Computational and Applied Electromagnetics Group

Welcome to the group for applied electromagnetism and electromagnetic simulations


Brief overview

The group for applied electromagnetism and electromagnetic simulations offers first-class support in the field of electromagnetic field simulations, simulation-based product development, modern design optimization and electromagnetic field measurements.

Our research and development experience covers the following areas:

  • Electromagnetic field simulations in the low and high frequency range
  • Simulation-based development of power and drive transformers
  • Electromagnetic analysis and optimization of electrical machines
  • Dynamic modeling, simulation and measurement of transformers and electrical machines under lightning surge in a wide frequency range
  • Dynamic modeling, simulation, and measurement of fast and ultra-fast electromagnetic transients in transformers and MV/HV switchgear
  • Simulation-based development of power electronics circuits
  • Design of electric drive systems
  • Verification measurements of machine simulation models at the in-house 30kW electric motor test bench
  • Verification measurements of simulations in the in-house High Voltage Laborarory
