Organisation profile

Introduction / mission

Our mission is to research high-performance electromagnetic actuation principles in – mainly, but not exclusively - automotive, high-precision, medical and robotics and to educate future-proof experts in these fields.

Highlighted phrase

Advance electromagnetic actuation systems by broadening our fundamental understanding.

Organisational profile

The ElectroMechanics Lab (EMLe) is one of two research labs within the electromechanics and power electronics (EPE) group within the department of electrical engineering of the TU/e. Our research is mainly focused on exploring novel, high-end, integrated, electromechanical system solutions to enhance performance indicators of such systems as compared to the current state-of-art. To explore and ultimately reap the potential of such systems we strive to not only continuously improve our understanding of the underlying physical fundamentals (electromagnetics, mechanics, thermodynamics, material science) of these complex multidomain systems, but to also apply new mathematical methods and techniques to accurately model them. This approach has enabled us to successfully realize experimentally verified actuation concepts for various fields of application, such as over-actuated, non-periodic, non- or quasi-symmetrical, re-configurable structures for high-precision manufacturing, medical technology, robotics and automotive. All in close cooperation with (inter)national industrial and academical partners.  A selection of current research projects include:


  • Ultrafast 2D and 3D semi-analytical models of static and dynamic fields
  • High accuracy linear and planar magnetic levitation systems
  • High-voltage and superconducting motors
  • Electromagnetic suspension and vibration isolation systems
  • Multi-DOF actuators and commutation strategies
  • High-speed,  reluctance and hybrid machines
  • Electromagnetic integration of wireless energy transfer systems in actuation systems

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
