Electromechanical Energy

The Electromechanical Energy laboratory collaborates closely with the Electromechanical research group.

Current research interests
Research exploitation

Most of the research carried out in the laboratory is at least part funded by industrial partners, these results are often exploited commercially and have resulted in several products including:

Expertise and facilities

The University of Southampton has a long established history of research in the area of electromechanical energy conversion, power electronics and electric switching phenomena.  State-of-the-art facilities are available for researchers including:

Research funding

Research funding has been provided by, among others, EPSRC, EU, DTI, TSL Technology, Subsea 7, Lynch Motor Company, Ohmex, Bowman Power Systems, XLT, P & G Drive Technology and Servocell PLC.


The laboratory regularly provides consultancy work in the areas of electric machine design, EM finite element analysis, system design and simulation and electric contacts and switches. We have expertise concerning the science and technology of electrical connectors for both power and signal applications. We work closely with the Research Institute for Industry (RIfI) and Southampton Consulting Services.
