Energy Mechatronics Laboratory (EML) focuses on increasing efficiency of energy systems through utilization of advanced techniques of control, modeling, estimation and diagnosis. Our research includes both theoretical and experimental aspects of energy systems, ranging from theoretical modeling of the systems to real-time implementation of energy controllers.

Current research involves the transportation and building sectors which account for 68% of total consumed energy in the United States. In the following, a brief overview of some of our ongoing research projects are provided.
