Research

The research focus areas of the EEA department are power systems and conversion, control, robotics and autonomous systems, well-being and a smart living environment, industrial electronics and informatics.

The department is a major player in Aalto University’s Energy Efficiency Research programme AEF. Also the Aalto ePowerHub is part of the EEA department.

Automatic control

The research done by the automatic control group is based on a firm knowledge of system theory, control engineering, simulation methods, optimisation methods, numerical algorithms, and so forth.

Bionic and Rehabilitation Engineering

Bionic and Rehabilitation Engineering (BaRE) research group investigates engineering techniques for human-machine interfacing in order to support, augment and rehabilitate human motor function. Through advancements in basic physiology, motor control, and biomechanics, we tailor novel biosensing and control approaches, as well as design methodologies in order to push the boundaries of current state-of-the-art bionic limbs, exoskeletons and rehabilitation robots.

Computational electromechanics

The research in our group is focused on the numerical modelling of coupled problems that occur in magnetic materials and especially electrical steel sheets used to construct electrical machines. These problems range from energy dissipation in the material to vibrations and noise of electrical machines and devices.

Computational electromechanics

Defense electronics

The Defence electronics research group concentrates on military radar hardware, related design, modelling and measuring concepts and field experiments.
