Power Electronics, Machines and Control Group
  • Print
As one of the largest and most recognised groups in its field worldwide, the Power Electronics, Machines and Control (PEMC) Research Group undertakes research in Power Electronics and Electrical Machines/Drives that are fundamental to our technological advancement.


These technologies underpin the electrification of transport and all renewable energy strategies and are vital for a sustainable future.

The Group undertakes work across all of these fields, with research covering the entire space from basic components to complete systems. Key work performed by the group includes a significant contribution to “Clean Sky” (Europe’s largest research programme) developing innovative, cutting-edge technology aimed at reducing CO2 emissions and noise levels produced by aircraft.

The Group’s expertise has also contributed to the multi-international award winning UoN electric superbike, which was successfully built and refined on campus by a race team made up of students, researchers and academics.

Research in the group ranges from basic technology investigation to fully engineered advanced concept demonstrators, carried out in world class experimental facilities that allow realistic practical validation of novel components and systems.
