In the Advanced Power Electronics (APEL) programme at Aalborg University Esbjerg, you will study advanced power electronics, electrical machines with strong focus on control engineering, optimisation and reliability, and integrating renewable energy systems for application sectors. You will study these topics analytically, numerically and experimentally in an innovative research environment.

This study programme combines contemporary technologies with adaptation from classic technologies such as electronics, power electronics, electrical machines, control engineering with artificial intelligence, reliability and maintenance issues. This gives you an understanding of the technologies, scientific background involved in the advanced power electronic areas, and its application in systems level studies in a real time environment.

Studying this programme, you learn how to model numerically using advanced software, analyse, synthesise and develop advanced power electronic systems level studies with theoretical background. Further, you will gain the knowledge how power electronics and drives interact with externally connected components or systems.

You will work with and explore topics such as:

  • Offshore wind turbine converters and control dynamics
  • Power electronic control of underwater robotics used in particular for inspection and maintenance operations
  • Diagnostic of power electronic and electrical machine installations
  • Optimum control dynamics of drives
  • Control of renewable energy systems
  • Electric propulsion systems for electric ships and vehicles – (More Electric Vehicles technologies)
  • Design of intelligent drone systems for inspection and maintenance
  • Design of intelligent control for robotic manipulator systems
  • Condition monitoring and maintenance of power electronic and electrical machine systems
  • Reliability analysis of power electronics and power systems.
