Main R&D areas

You can find excellent research of electrochemical power sources including lead-acid batteries, lithium-ion technology, or the newest types of batteries as lithium-sulfur or sodium-ion batteries at our department. The Department of Electrical and Electronic Technology can be considered the leading Czech research institution in this field.

Another important field of research and development is the renewable energy sources such as photovoltaic systems, in which not only fundamental but also applied research takes place. This is focused on the analysis of photovoltaic panel faults and their causes.

Then we deal with dielectric and insulation materials for electrical technology and power engineering together with interconnecting structures and printed circuit boards (PCBs).

A substantial part of all the above-mentioned fields is modeling and simulation connected with 3D print. It is very difficult, in some fields almost impossible, to conduct research without using simulation methods. For example the simulation of heat flow inside a battery at various loads.

Electrochemical energy sources – batteries

The activity of this group is focused mainly on excellent research and development in the field of electrochemical energy sources aiming at lead-acid, lithium-ion, and sodium-ion batteries together with lithium-sulphur systems and fuel cells..

Simulations and 3D modeling

This group cooperates closely with companies where they often solve problems from real operational or manufacturing needs.

Photovoltaic cells and modules

This group is focused on both fundamental research and collaboration with industrial subjects in the field of photovoltaic cells, modules, and panels.
