Department of Electromechanical, Systems and Metal Engineering


Lifecycle:1 Jan 1993  →  Today
Organisation profile:Research at EEMMECS is organized in four smaller groups. The research group Electrical Energy Laboratory EELab is active in various areas of electrical energy conversion, electrical drives (electrical machines, power electronics for drives, and control of drives), electromagnetic field calculations (development of FE software for field calculations and application to the design of electromagnetic devices), magnetic material modelling and characterization and electrical power networks (including also power electronic converters for mains applications).Soete Laboratory is one of the top research institutes of Ghent University. The laboratory is indulged in research on Fracture, Fatigue and Tribology and provides service to universities and industries worldwide.The group on Dynamical Systems and Control (DySC) delivers qualitative results in characterizing, analyzing and improving performance and outcome under specified conditions in all dynamical systems. DySC offers a multitude of software tools, methodologies and mathematical/analytical procedures to be tailored upon a variety of applications. The portfolio ranges from (non)linear dynamical processes with time varying conditions, constrained specifications, robustness, stability and energy efficiency.The Materials Science and Technology group performs fundamental and applied research into the key areas of materials science: characterization and modeling of mechanical material behavior, physical materials science, molecular modeling of metal properties and processing, microstructural observation from nano- to macro scale and metal technology.
