University of Innsbruck, Austria

Innsbruck Power Electronics Lab (i-PEL), as a part of the Institute of Mechatronics, has been recently founded by Infineon Technologies AG, Austria and University of Innsbruck. Research activities are mainly focused on the cutting edge Power Semiconductors and Power Electronics in general.

Key persons

Prof. Petar Grbovic

Key research facilities, infrastructure and equipment

Innsbruck Power Electronics Lab (i-PEL): is currently training other PhDs also in the field of power electronics circuits for EV fast charger and therefore all the lab equipment needed for ESR9 are in place.
