Power Electronics and Electric Machinery (PEEM) Research Center


The PEEM Center’s researchers are the DOE’s premiere resources for the development of power electronics and electric machinery research. Recent activities in the grid, automotive, and renewables space have driven advances in wireless and wired power charging, power inverters and converters, efficient motor control technologies, compact electric motors, and packaging. The Center’s activities cover all these areas from invention to analysis, modeling, simulation, to in-house evaluation and prototyping of components. Recent accomplishments include the world’s first demonstrations of bi-directional wireless power transfer between a building and a vehicle, and a 3D-printed inverter.
