The research strategy of the TU Ilmenau is aimed at providing not only its own scientists but also the research partners and industry with an outstanding technological infrastructure. To this end, two specialized centers have been installed. Center for Energy Technology The Center for Energy Technology offers the 15 groups of the TU Ilmenau who are in an inter-departmental liaison with each other at the Institute for Energy, Power Train and Environmental Systems Technologies the opportunity to conduct interdisciplinary research. Furthermore, it provides third parties with technical equipment and services. At the Institute, scientists work in an interdisciplinary manner on the complete complex process from the production and storage of energy up to its conversion, control, transmission and distribution. They work – either permanently or order-related – on resource-saving, consumption-oriented, low-pollutant and environmentally friendly technologies and methods. Fields of development are an innovative energy supply as well as new types of electrical networks, solar power installations and wind turbines of the future, and also efficient drives for vehicles, machines and plants. Numerous groups of researchers work in the fields of photovoltaic, energy-efficient consumer goods, lightning protection and switching devices, network operation/ network control technology, and DC distribution technology. +49 3677 69-3799 info-zet@tu-ilmenau.de Zentrum für Energietechnik Ehrenbergstraße 11 98693 Ilmenau 26
