Institut für Energietechnik (IET)

Computational and Applied Electromagnetics

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
