With our video series we want to give you insights into our competences, accompany our scientists and introduce you to our superwomen in science. Find out what motivates our employees and why they enjoy working at SAL, which innovative projects we are working on and how we want to unfold the future along the entire EBS value chain.
In the Power Electronics research division, new, more-powerful solutions are researched for all types of electric energy converters in all power classes, from the system and control design, through to switching structures and to integration methods and construction elements in new technologies.
Together with five key-players in the field of Power Electronics, our team is currently working on the project "Tiny Power Box", a bi-directional onboard-charger for electric cars.
This project is carried out together with Fronius International GmbH, Infineon Technologies Austria AG, AT & S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik AG, TDK Electronics GmbH & Co OG and AVL List GmbH.
ASSIC Project - Fourier Transform Spectrometer
Within the COMET ASSIC program, we work on various projects with partners from industry and science. Amongst others, we created a fourier transform spectrometer for the near infra-red.
**This project was performed within the COMET Centre ASSIC Austrian Smart Systems Integration Research Center, which is funded by BMK, BMDW, and the Austrian provinces of Carinthia and Styria, within the framework of COMET - Competence Centres for Excellent Technologies. The COMET programme is run by FFG.
