The Wisconsin Electric Machines and Power Electronics Consortium (WEMPEC) is a technology center at the University of Wisconsin­‐Madison. WEMPEC began in January 1981 with a mission to provide education, research, and service. With the support of more than 60 corporate sponsors, our team of professors, staff, graduate students, and international scholars work together to research and develop the newest technologies and techniques in electric machines, power electronics, actuators, sensors, drives, motion control, and drive applications.

  • Professors Chirag Gupta and Shubhra Pasayat add new energy and resources to power semiconductor research.

    Semiconductor chips aren’t just the “brains” of our computers and smart phones. A different variety of chip, called power semiconductors, transform, route and manage the energy that powers our gadgets and are equally as important. Making them faster and more efficient is just as critical to enabling next generation technologies as improving processor speed.

  • ECE at UW-Madison was well-represented at the ARPA-E

    ARPA-E’s Unlocking Lasting Transformative Resilience Advances by Faster Actuation of Power Semiconductor Technologies (ULTRAFAST) program in Chicago.

  • Video available: Watch Prof. Giri’s Talk on Jevons’ Paradox and Decarbonization online

    Over a hundred years ago, the English economist William Stanley Jevons keenly observed that technological advances that increase energy efficiency leads to further increased energy consumption and not the other way around. In this talk, Prof. Giri reviews Jevons' observations and links it to present ones. The talk was given in September 2023 as part of the Wisconsin Energy Institute's Sustainable Energy series.
