Electric energy

The MONDRAGON UNIVERSITY Electric Energy research group focuses its activities in energy management, for applications such us distributed generation (generation, transmission and distribution), traction (rail and naval) and electronic devices (elevation, industrial processes, etc..).

The research lines are connected to the fields of power electronics and electrical machines, two of the basic components of most of the electronic devices under study. Hence, a detailed analysis of the final application allows a complete and balanced design and development of the electronic devices.

    1.- POWER ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS FOR ELECTRIC ENERGY CONTROL

    The research line is focused on:

    • Applications in new power electronic components.
    • New power electronic converter topologies development.
    • Medium Voltage grid conected power electronic devices development, for several applications.
    • Coordination of electric-electronic components for distributed generation applications.

    2.- DRIVES FOR TRACTION AND ELECTRIC ENERGY GENERATION APPLICATIONS

    The main objective of this research line is to develop the required know-how for design, modelling, simulation and control of the devices which its operation principle is the electromagnetism.

    • Modelling, simulation and control of AC electrical machines: (vector control, direct torque control, state observers, sensorless systems, parameter estimation, etc…)
    • Electromagnetism: Development of mathematical tools to design electrical machines and actuators. Studying their behaviour with finite element methods, allowing to improve and optimize their performance.
    • Application analysis: Applications such as wind energy generation, vertical transport and traction require different specific elements in order to perform as optimized systems.
