Energy systems

Electrical energy systems are a critical foundation for the modern human enterprise. With rising global concerns of climate change, our research promotes solutions that contribute to energy sustainability, energy security and resiliency against human-made and natural disasters. UW-Madison’s ECE department is at the forefront of these energy innovations. Our research ranges from fusion energy systems to electric power converters and electrical machines that enable renewable energy applications, electric vehicles, and magnetic levitation while utilizing optimization and machine learning to develop solutions for greener, more resilient electrical grids. Our strong and interactive research ecosystem spans the domains of physics, circuits, machines, and networks.
