Research & Development

The field of research and development has very high priority at AEM.

We continuously analyse each series for potential improvements in terms of reliability, efficiency and customer benefits, thus ensuring that our products become even better with each new version. And we have been doing just that for over 60 years.

Our engineers are also enthusiastic about unconventional ideas; they go their own way and are constantly questioning existing rules and conventions. At the same time, they use AEM’s unique experience to continuously improve our products.

In addition to AEM's own powerful calculation and modelling methods, our development department also has access to finite element software, which is used, for example, for simulations in the fields of structural mechanics and electromagnetism.

What is more, we have our own regulator development process which allows us to select the perfect combination of synchronous generator and regulator.

Research is conducted in close cooperation with universities or private institutes, such as for example the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, the Chemnitz University of Technology, Dresden University of Technology, S&T cooperation, FEMCOS and the Fraunhofer Institute.

The main areas of research are:

  • the investigation of physical phenomena in electrical machines,
  • energy efficiency,
  • machine acoustics,
  • materials, processes and manufacturing technology,
  • new materials,
  • the optimal coordination of components in the drive system.
