Our institute’s main research topics are mainly related to the reliability, cost-efficiency and sustainability of electric power supply. Thus, we deal on the one hand with tasks from the field of high-voltage insulation performance and condition assessment and on the other hand with the requirements for planning and operation of future electric power grids which arise from the increasing use of renewable energies. A special emphasis of our research work is in the field of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) of both power electric and electronic systems.
The IEH offers students lectures within the study programs B.Sc. Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, B.Sc. Renewable Energy Engineering, M.Sc. Electrical Engineering and Information Technology as well as M.Sc. Sustainable Electrical Energy Supply. Practical experiences are made during the Practical Training Renewable Energies and during the Practical Exercises at the laboratory. To give students an inside view into the world of work, the IEH regularly organizes excursions to companies and power plants.
