Collaborate with us!

Jak s námi spolupracovat

The Department of Power Electrical and Electronic Engineering focuses on close collaboration with industry. We are very pleased that many of these companies work with us repeatedly on various research and development projects. On the other hand, we are open for new collaboration with companies and startups which are interested in our work and research. We are happy to cooperate on product innovations in the field of electric motors, instruments, machines, and power and control electronics.

Our department is part of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communications. Nevertheless, we often cooperate with experts from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and we are able to provide you a complex research and development which is beyond the focus of our department. The department of Power Electrical and Electronic Engineering is also a part of Centre for Research and Utilization of Renewable Energy (CVVOZE) and Centre for New Technologies for Mechanical Engineering (NETME).

The most common forms of collaboration with industry

Long-term research and development – 2-4 years. Projects with financial support of grant agencies for the company and the research institution. For example, TAČR grant programmes.

Short-term research and development – few months or years. Contract research between the company and our department.

Single or repeated measurements using our facility, eventually also data processing and analysis.

Simulation and modelling using specialized software. For instance, Matlab+Simulink, ANSYS,…..

We are experts in:
