Electromagnetic Actuator Laboratory
Developing motor technology that is friendly to the earth and people
Our laboratory is conducting research to improve the performance of conventional motors as well as developing new motors, besides conducting research on how to control them. As it has been over 100 years since the invention of motor, it seems like an old technology, but motors are indispensable in supporting modern lives. Therefore, the motor, while old, is still a new technology because of the advancements being made to it even today.
