Energy Meets Information

Expertise on sustainable electric energy systems at large, including energy efficiency, smart energy use control and intelligent operation of transmission and distribution grids. Expertise in intelligent design and operation of different components of the power system, like transformers, cables, motors and frequency converters. Developing and understanding deeply the operation of components are important from the system point of view too.

One of the key competences is efficient energy use and power conversion, including transformers, electric machines, power electronics and electric drives. Integration of renewable production such as wind and solar is implemented by electrical power conversion. Other fields of energy efficiency include energy efficient ICT, energy use of datacenters, ICT infrastructure, powering sensors, and retail and wholesale electricity markets (e.g. agent-based allocation mechanisms for Smart Grids).
