Department of Electromechanical Engineering and Power Electronics (KEV)


The Department of Electromechanics and Power Electronics (KEV) continues the tradition of one of the oldest programmes of the historical University of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering (VŠSE), a field of high-voltage 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 in Pilsen 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 a complete drive which makes KEV a unique Central European department, sought after by a number of foreign partners.
