Introductie / missie

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.

Over de organisatie

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

VN Doelstellingen voor duurzame ontwikkeling

In 2015 stemden de VN-lidstaten in met 17 wereldwijde duurzame ontwikkelingsdoelstellingen (Sustainable Development Goals, SDG's) om armoede te beëindigen, de planeet te beschermen en voor iedereen welvaart te garanderen. Ons werk draagt bij aan de volgende duurzame ontwikkelingsdoelstelling(en):

  • SDG 7 – Betaalbare en schone energie
