Electrical energy transmission ja distribution systems are the critical backbone of modern societies. Our wide infrastructure enables our role as key players in these fields of science..  

Electrical energy transmission ja distribution as well as local energy systems, the critical backbone of modern societies, are currently under exceptional reformation. Power production is more dispersed, role of power electronics is strongly increasing as well as demands for efficiency while the system control is getting more demanding. We will maintain and develop our existing wide infrastructure keeping the state-of-the-art level, enabling our role as key players in these fields of science.

Electrical energy engineering research infrastructures offer a comprehensive range of possibilities for the study, monitoring, analysis and control of different electrical energy systems and their components. The different infrastructures allow the characterisation and analysis of magnetic, dielectric and superconducting materials, components and systems, grid-connected power electronics equipment, and the operation, control and diagnostics of different power grids, their components and subsystems, both individually and as part of a wider power system.
