Company profile:
The Energy and Propulsion Laboratory (eProLab) Group of the Department of Industrial Engineering at the University of Salerno carries out studies in the energy conversion related fields with main focus on transportation (cars, buses, rail systems), stationary systems (APUs, grid connected system), and renewable energy uses. Specific efforts are devoted to the modelling and control of internal combustion engines (SI and Diesel) and hybrid propulsion systems and to the application of fuel cells to both transportation systems and stationary applications. This latter area is covered with theoretical studies and lab experiments toward the optimization of PEFC and SOFC control strategies and diagnostics tools. Particular attention is drawn towards the development of model-based methodologies for efficient energy management, control and diagnosis of cooling systems in telephone central offices and data-centers. The integration of complex energy systems for mobile application (i.e. traction, APU) as well as stationary grid connected energy production also are studied. Moreover, on Fuel Cells diagnosis and control, eProLab is partners of several EU FCH-JU funded projects (GENIUS, D-CODE, DESIGN, PUMA-MIND, DIAMOND).
The Power Electronics and Renewable Energies Laboratory of the Department of Information Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Applied Mathematics at the University of Salerno hosts activities on power management design and related optimization tools. Main fields of application are power converters, photovoltaic systems, LED drivers, automotive power supplies, isolated converters, fuel cells, battery management. Most of research and development activities are funded by world-wide power electronics companies, e.g. Bitron, Texas Instruments, PowerOne, Astrid, Elettronica Santerno, or by the EC through the FP7 program (D-CODE, ENIAC-END).
