Laboratory of Electrical engineering and Power Electronics (L2EP)

Research unit - None


Our laboratory focuses on the major topics of electrical engineering, including electrical energy management, modeling and design of electrical and electromechanical systems. The laboratory is composed of 4 research teams covering all aspects inherent to the field of electrical energy: energy management of electromechanical systems, evolution of conversion structures, development of numerical models and methodologies for the design of electromagnetic devices, energy management in smart grids... The scientific goal of the laboratory is to anticipate the advent of new tools, new components, new materials and manufacturing processes, capable of modifying and improving the dynamic performance, energy efficiency and reliability of electrical systems.
