I. Projects, project work and final theses
We always have interesting projects (4 Credits), project work (2 Credits), final projects and work for student researchers in the following fields
- power electronics
- electric drive engineering
- electronic systems
as part of research projects and for the general laboratory work. Please contact us if you are interested in working in our laboratory.
II. Mechatronics projects
For students in the 6th semester of the Bachelor programmes, we offer interesting topics for mechatronics projects. Here are some examples from previous semesters:
“RotoSens” project: At the moment, normal practice is to use very complex and expensive telemetry systems to record the rotor temperature during the testing of electric motors. The RotoSens project developed a measurement system which registers the rotor temperature and transmits it to the stator side with the aid of bluetooth low-energy transmission technology. The challenges here are a power supply with harvesting technologies and the thermostability of the circuit.
“Mobirex Evo 2” project: In collaboration with an industrial partner, a fully functional model of the “Mobirex Evo 2” mobile crusher was set up. This model illustrates how a crusher operates when used in road construction for crushing excavated material, for example. The model was presented to a wide audience at the BAUMA 2019 construction machinery trade fair.
Detailed information on the laboratory exercises can be found ot the German website.
The Electrical Engineering Laboratory has a comprehensive range of the latest equipment, such as:
- Test stands for electric drives from 10 kW to 150 kW, detailed overview (in German)
- Work stations for the construction and commissioning of power electronics circuits
- EMC laboratory for line-based and field-based emission and interference measurements
- Clean room for manufacturing thick-film substrates and assembly and joining technology (e.g. bonding)
- SMD mounting laboratory with component mounting robot, vapour phase and wave soldering device as well as manual work stations
- High-voltage hall with generation and measurement devices for high AC and pulsed voltages
- Automotive electronics laboratory with equipment for bus analysis
- Materials laboratory with analytical equipment for insulation resistance and partial discharge, for example.
If you are interested in using these facilities, please contact the head of the laboratory, Prof. Martin Neuburger.
