EA 2.0 Electric Drives

Aim of the research project

Development of the competitive electric machine of the future as well as the applicability of the research results to related areas, such as railroad drives.


Electric propulsion is already widely used today. Due to climate change its importance continues to increase. ts importance continues to increase. Classical combustion engines are replaced by electric drives.

In addition to availability and efficiency, higher power density (power/input mass) is one of the key requirements for the development of new electric drives. In order to remain competitive, therefore, disruptive approaches must be found to redesigning and manufacturing. Digitalization offers enormous opportunities for this.

This project is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)
