Distributed Energy Laboratory – DLab

Under the roof term „Distributed Energy Laboratory“ – short DLab – operates the institute different laboratories for investigation of key technologies in the field of electrical power systems. The well-equipped, versatile and networked facilities offer the also in the international comparison rare possibility to develop ideas from the fundamental research over patent applications all the way to the subsequent applied research with development of prototypes in comparatively and competitively short periods of time.
