Welcome to the Electrical Power Engineering Unit of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Mons
The unit of fifteen people is mainly active in smart grids, power electronics, electrical machines and computational electromagnetics
More specifically, the Unit carries out researches on the following main topics
Smart Grids and Micro-Grids
Data analytics, electricity markets, long-term planning, interaction models, power quality aspects
Net Zero Energy Buildings and Districts
Energy management, scheduling and control
Renewable Energies AND STORAGE SYSTEMS
Wind and photovoltaic
Wireless Power Transfer Using Resonant Inductive Coupling
Power Electronics for Railway and Space Applications
Design, optimization, control
Modeling of Electromagnetic Devices Using Numerical Methods
The Unit is fully equipped with modern state-of-art testing instruments and data acquisition platforms (Labview, dSPACE) to undertake standard measurements on most electrical equipments, as well as with specific simulation and calculation softwares (PSIM, Comsol Multiphysics, Neplan, etc.).
It hosts also a High-Voltage laboratory dedicated to teaching and industrial testing and measurement (breakdown voltage, leakage current, etc.). Non-destructive tests are possible mainly for dielectric loss and capacitance measurement (Schering bridge) and for resistivity measurement (measuring cell).
The unit gets funding from regional (e.g. Walloon Region DG06), national (e.g. FNRS) and European (e.g. ESA's Networking/Partnering Initiative) agencies as well as from industrial partners (e.g. in the context of the ORES chair).
