The Power & Energy Systems Laboratory (PESL) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) was established in the fall of 2008. Our research aims to develop innovative technologies to provide better electric energy security and sustainability. To achieve this goal we carry out leading-edge research in the areas of clean and renewable energy systems, new electrical energy conversion devices, smart grids, microgrids, power system control and optimization, condition monitoring, fault diagnostics and prognostics, energy storage systems, power electronics, and electric machines and drives.


PESL alumnus, Dr. Yue Zhao, earned a five-year, $500,000 National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award to develop the Next-Generation SiC Motor Drives. Congratulations to Yue!

Josue Campos do Prado and Mohamed Kareem Al-Ashery received the Second Prize and Third Prize of the Best Paper Awards, respectively, at the 50th North American Power Symposium (NAPS 2018). Congratulations to Josue and Mohamed!

PESL members Chao Jia and Prof. Wei Qiao are the second-place winner of the IEEE Vehicular Technology Society (VTS) Motor Vehicles Challenge 2019
