HIPO - Integrated High-speed Power Systems for Industry and Mobile Applications
Research Project, 2022 – 2025

This DN implements a multidisciplinary and innovative research and training programme, bringing together different scientific fields and industrial participation to enable a new generation of Doctoral Candidates (DCs) to investigate and develop electric drives in the context of electrification in the transition towards zero-emissions. Electrification is one of the key assets in green transition and future sustainable world.
While electrification offers one of the main solutions in reaching carbon-neutral societies, there is already now a lack of skilled persons in the field. Therefore there is an urgent need to educate young highly skilled engineers with a breadth of interdisciplinarity on designing propulsion machines and power converters to become EU’s future leaders in power electronic systems (applied in renewable energy systems and electric vehicles - EVs). The proposed network is timely in meeting the challenges, bringing together the leading experts and providing best training opportunities to doctoral candidates (DC). This will make a step change in the EU’s key industry with potential impacts on other applications such as high-speed trains, electric vehicles, electric aircrafts and ships.

High-speed technology enables high material and energy efficiency. Therefore, HIPO (integrated HIgh-speed POwer systems for industry and mobile applications) research and training programme will focus on providing Doctoral Candidates (DCs) with relevant knowledge, methods and skills across a wide range of disciplines around Electric High-Speed Drives.
