EEMMECS Research groups
Research at EEMMECS is organized in four smaller groups. Each team is headed by one or more permanent teaching staff members, and may further consist of postdoctoral researchers, doctoral students and students working on their graduation thesis.
The research group EELab is active in various areas of electrical energy conversion, electrical drives (electrical machines, power electronics for drives, and control of drives), electromagnetic field calculations (development of FE software for field calculations and application to the design of electromagnetic devices), magnetic material modelling and characterization and electrical power networks (including also power electronic converters for mains applications).
Soete Laboratory is one of the top research institutes of Ghent University. The laboratory is indulged in research on Fracture, Fatigue and Tribology and provides service to universities and industries worldwide.
The group on Dynamical Systems and Control (DySC) delivers qualitative results in characterizing, analyzing and improving performance and outcome under specified conditions in all dynamical systems. DySC offers a multitude of software tools, methodologies and mathematical/analytical procedures to be tailored upon a variety of applications. The portfolio ranges from (non)linear dynamical processes with time varying conditions, constrained specifications, robustness, stability and energy efficiency.
