The Efficient and Reliable Power Electronics group at The Department of Energy Technology (Aalborg University) is a world-class research center within the field of power electronics.

The purpose of the group is to develop innovative power electronic converters and systems to all relevant applications, which are efficient, reliable and cost-competitive by means of reduction in manufacturing, maintenance and operational costs.

70 % of all electrical energy is processed by power electronics. Therefore our goal is to develop the future generation of power electronic converters, which are benchmarked to high efficiency, higher power density, low weight, low cost and at the same time focusing on the reliability in the power converters. The applications are very wide as power electronic is used in production, transmission and consumption of energy in photovoltaics, wind turbines, refrigerators, pumps, computers, televisions or the like. The power range of applications is from W to MW.

As one of the top 10 research groups in power electronics in the world in terms of publications, impact (citations) and reputation, the group strives for the highest excellence in research and education. With an ever increasing number of PhD’s and state-of-the-art lab facilities, the program has a wide portfolio of project collaborations with global market players, research institutions and SME’s.
