Hipo is a  doctoral network for researching Integrated high-speed power systems for industry and mobile applications, which is part of a European MSCA programme running from 2022 to 2026 with six academic institutions: LUT, KIT, Chalmers, DTU, Aalborg and UNIPI.

High-power high-speed machines and system integration are like the Formula One race cars of the electrical drives industry. As in motor sports, high-speed drives adopt the latest technological advancements and push them to extremes.

This doctoral network will train ten highly skilled doctoral candidates and create a methodology for optimum drive designs in transportation applications. Doctoral students positions are now open and you can find more info below:

On Autumn will be opened 4 more PhD open positions on:

Electromagnetic Interference Analysis and Mitigation of Highly Integrated Power Electronics in Motor Drives, AAU

Integrated Design for Reliability of Motor Drives in High-Power High-Speed Machines, AAU

Investigation of novel manufacturing technologies for high-speed synchronous reluctance machines, KIT

Multiphysics design of high-power density and high efficiency propulsion drive, UNIPI
