F-35 Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS)

UT CEM was integral in developing the first prototype Electromagnetic Launch system. It’s exciting to see this innovative technology in action on the USS Gerald Ford!

Microgrid Control

Exerting Control

Xianyong Feng and Bob Hebner of CEM along with collaborators A. Shekhar and P. Bauer of Delft University and F. Yang of the University of Wisconsin Plattesville have just published the paper, “Comparison of Hierarchical Control and Distributed Control for Microgrids”. Just like a university, a company, or a country, a microgrid can have a very hierarchical or a very distributed management structure

Application Areas

Our approach involves participation in a continuum of research projects, each contributing to our knowledge base and core competencies while leveraging the results and experiences gained in previous projects. We intend to always be on the forefront of the new age of electrification by applying our fundamental understanding of the technologies involved to an increasing number of novel application areas.
