Grainger CEME

Center for Electric Machinery and Electromechanics

Past Advanced Research Projects Projects

Advances in the design and application of electric machinery requires innovation in control, modeling techniques and monitoring tools, energy storage, computer-aided design, energy-processing systems and methods, and distributed systems. The CEME supports basic research and the development of new ideas in topic areas most likely to impact the design and use of machines. Other tools, such as dynamic visualization of the magnetic fields in a rotating machine, control architecture for microgrids, automatic generation control, and wide bandgap semiconductors for inverters and drives, are also supported. The objective is to build a fundamental base for advances across all areas of electromechanics.
