Development of high-efficiency electric power systems

The ECO 5 team provides engineering services in development and simulation of high-efficiency electric power systems and facilities. We focus on generators for wind, hydro and wave power plants. Beyond rotating machines, we offer core competencies in inductive metal heating and energy-efficient fault current limiters for high-voltage power grids. Our engineers provide specialised expertise in industrial applications of superconductors as well as copper and permanent magnet-based solutions.

 

We support customer projects from analytical and material technological development to comprehensive electromagnetic, mechanical and thermodynamical 3-D simulation to CAD-based mechanical design and prototype construction. In addition to this we provide expert knowledge in cryo technology, system safety and intellectual property situation analysis.
