Department of Power Electronics and Machines (KEV)

The Department of Electromechanics and Power Electronics (KEV) continues the tradition of one of the oldest programs of the historical University of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering (VŠSE), a high-voltage field current electrical engineering. Its history dates back to 1960. Relating to the development of the whole VŠSE, its transformation into the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University of West Bohemia, and gradual development of the focus of individual departments, KEV's activity is currently focused on the development of electric machines, their control, and the design of complete drives for special purposes. It is the possibility of designing an entire drive, which makes KEV a unique Central European department, sought after by many foreign partners.
