Applied researches

Applied Researches are aimed to the study, design and the prototyping of advanced features, components, equipment related to all the applications of the Electrical Drives. National or European Industrial Innovation projects as well as confidential projects committed by industries usually support this kind of Research activity.

Hereafter a selection of the main applied reserch projects is reported (newest first)

  • Automotive - Motors and drives for on board auxiliaries of more-electric-vehicles are studied, designed and prototyped. Read more:
