Institut für Stromrichtertechnik und Elektrische Antriebe (ISEA)
The institute for Power Electronics and Electrical Drives (ISEA) is an integrated institute with three chairs. Prof. Rik W. De Doncker holds the chair on Power Electronics and Electrical Drives and Prof. Dirk Uwe Sauer holds the chair on Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage Systems and Prof. Egbert Figgemeier holds the chair on Ageing and Lifetime Prediction of Batteries. Research activities are focused on all type of applications which require power electronics and energy storage systems.
The Chair on Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage Systems is organized in three sections with a clear focus on battery and energy storage systems. Our tasks is to make the best out of existing battery technologies for any type of application by appropriate selection of the battery technology, optimum sizing, lifetime-maximizing operating and management strategies, battery system designs for reliable and safe operation, and precise monitoring and diagnostics.
