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 70 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.


  • Congratulations to New NAE Members in our WEMPEC Community!

    We are excited to share the wonderful news that two members of our extended WEMPEC community, Prof. Longya Xu and Dr. Vladimir Blasko, were elected this year to the US National Academy of Engineering (NAE), one of the highest honors bestowed on US engineers for outstanding career achievements.  

  • WEMPEC Student winner at Wisconsin Energy Institute’s Energy Research Showcase

    WEMPEC student Maitreyee Marathe was one of five UW-Madison College of Engineering students to win an award for the Flash Talk session at the Energy Research Showcase hosted by the Wisconsin Energy Institute on February 17th, 2023. Marathe’s project, Optimal Energy Rationing for Prepaid Electricity Customers, “considers forecasts of future use and knowledge of appliance power ratings to help customers prioritize and limit use of low-priority appliances, with the goal of extending access to their critical appliances.”

  • Master of Science in Electrical & Computer Engineering: Professional Program Takes Off

    The MS-Professional, or MS-P, program is a UW coursework-only curriculum with a 12-16 month completion timeline. It is designed to deepen students’ technical knowledge and sharpen their professional skills for industry. Students who choose the Electric Machines and Drives or Power Electronics program tracks not only enroll in courses offered by WEMPEC faculty, but they also have the opportunity to opt-in to become part of the WEMPEC community. As the first MS-P students who joined WEMPEC are graduating, read about the program and the students' experiences in school and internships.

  • WEMPEC Faculty Affiliates Spotlight

    Over the past year, WEMPEC has formalized its collaborative research relationships with numerous University of Wisconsin faculty members with the WEMPEC Faculty Affiliates program. We feel that our students will benefit from the opportunity to engage with the other faculty members and their research teams, and we know that our industry members will benefit from the added breadth in our technology domain. We are excited to introduce our Faculty Affiliates in the December newsletter.
