Power and Energy Systems (PES)

The Power and Energy Systems (PES) Area focuses on electrical power engineering.  Societal challenges being addressed by Purdue faculty include technologies needed for sustainability and reduced carbon emissions, technologies needed to support an increasingly stressed bulk power system, and technologies needed to for the next generation of marine, aerospace, and vehicular power and propulsion systems. Purdue work focuses on electromechanical component design, power electronics design, passive component design, power magnetics, electric drive and actuator systems, marine and aerospace power and propulsion systems, and bulk power system control, power quality, optimal dispatch, and stability. Purdue’s work in advanced modeling, simulation, and automated design methods is of particular note.
