Modeling and optimal control of electric machines with redundant stator windings

A fault of an electric machine can yield a potentially dangerous behavior of the overall system in certain applications. In this research projects, methods for the fault detection and the fault-tolerant operation of permanent magnet synchronous machines are developed. Read more →

Modeling and control of injection molding machines

Injection molding is the most prominent way to produce components made of plastics. In this research project, control strategies are developed for the optimal operation of injection molding machines. Read more →
