The Transportation Research Lab (TRLab) is active in power electronics, electrical drives and energy storage devices, in modeling and simulation of electrical transportation systems, including control strategies and control circuits. TRLab focuses its research activities along three principal axes:

  • Power Electronics oriented to the development of new Electrical Drives and Converter topologies for traction applications (Railway, Aircraft, Ship and EV). In particular, TRLab is focused on the development of Modular Multilevel Converters integrated with new Energy Storage Devices and Renewable Energy Sources.
  • Designing, realization and testing of Laboratory Scale model in order to simulate complex Electrical and Mechanical systems like railway network. In particular, TRLab is focused on development of electromechanical simulator for Light Railway Vehicle and Metro network .
  • Control, simulation and testing of AC Electrical Drive up to 250 kW. In particular, TRLab is focused on the testing  of Asynchronous and AC Brushless Drives for  Electric Traction Applications.
