Welcome at the Institute of Electrical Engineering (ETI)
At the Institute of Electrical Engineering (ETI) of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), experts in power electronics, electrical machines, drive control, and energy storage systems conduct research. With about 70 employees, interdisciplinary cooperation of these neighboring research areas takes place in order to improve the increasing requirements in terms of power density, functionality, and energy efficiency and to create innovations.
In addition to research and teaching, the ETI is working on a wide range of projects in close cooperation with industry and public project sponsors to find innovative solutions and concepts for the future. In addition, the ETI offers an extensive equipment pool in which prototypes are built and tested for use.
To ensure that no kilowatt hour remains unused: Fraunhofer IWU and partners pave the way for energy storage systems into the factoryMore
In the research project Solarpark 2.0, KIT is working together with partners from science and industry to reduce these losses. Innovative circuits, novel power electronics and KI-supported optimization are intended to increase the yield and service life of plants and reduce operating costs.More
The paper "Hardware Realization of Participants in an Energy Packet-based Power Grid" by Mr. Dominik Schulz was awarded with the Best Paper Award by the PEDG conference.More
