Elektrotechnisches Institut (ETI),
Fakultät Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik,
Technische Universität Dresden

The main research areas of the Power Electronics Chair are power semiconductors, power converters and converter control. Typical applications are electrical drives, renewable energies, transmission and distribution of electrical energy, traction, automotive and technological power supplies. Specialized laboratories and test benches have been developed in order to create a link between theory and practical applications. In two labs for medium voltage components power semiconductors and their corresponding electronic infrastructure like gate units, power supplies, voltage and current sensors, etc. can be studied in detail. In a power converter lab new converter concepts like multilevel converters are investigated and verified on lab test benches and prototypes. A fast prototyping four quadrant drive test bench is applied to investigate and to verify new control and modulation methods for converters (e.g. active rectifiers) and electrical drives.

Institut für Feinwerktechnik und Elektronik-Design (IFTE),
Fakultät Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik,
Technische Universität Dresden

The research focus of the Institute of Electromechanical and Electronic Design (IFTE) of Technische Universität Dresden is on precision engineering and on design, test and optimisation of electromechanical and electronic devices and systems. In this context, novel magnetic actuators and electrodynamic drive systems with embedded control are developed together with partners from public and industry. Fields of application for these drives are for example automation and handling or small machine tools. EtherCAT hereby enables for real-time transfer of set positions and other control commands.

Institut für Werkzeugmaschinen und Steuerungstechnik (IWM),
Fakultät Maschinenwesen,
Technische Universität Dresden

The IWM at Dresden University of Technology was founded in 1954. Teachings are focused on machine tool design with special view on mechatronic contents as well as PLCs and CNCs. Research activities focus on structure and process analysis, forming technologies, manufacturing planning as well as control engineering of mechatronic systems (e.g. parallel kinematics, linear direct drives, magnetic bearings) and innovative control concepts.
