Power Systems Technology and Power Mechatronics
Since the establishment of Power Systems Technology and Power Mechatronics at the Ruhr-University Bochum, research in the department is focused on renewable energy systems. Particular emphasis is given to wind energy, where single components as well as the overall system are considered. The efficiency and durability of system components and their interaction and influence on the overall system behaviour are investigated.
Since its foundation the team is constantly growing, establishing a range of expertise. That is why the electro mobility, a future orientated research field, became a significant part of our research some years ago. A lot of research projects are based on this topic, so that we were able to get some findings.
At these workings the team under the direction of professor Sourkounis is supported by office and technical staff. This team includes Mrs. Knop, Mrs. Pietchek and Mr. Ischler.
