The research group deals with every field which is connected to the motion control, energy production, energy conversion. It requires the wide knowledge, usage, examination, measurement, calculation and development of the electrical machines, power electronics for their supply and microcomputer control. It clear, this field of research is very close to the physical systems, very interdisciplinary in the electrical engineering science, which requires tough theoretical and practical knowledge.

Dynamic behaviour of energy supply systems (primarily power systems), control and optimization of their components, interaction with energy markets, modelling and design of the latter, and interaction with ICT systems.
Between 2008 and 2016, we introduced a completely new field of competence (at department and university level): the simulation of the electricity markets and the related regulatory background were the tasks of many of our scientific and industrial R&D work during these years, the most significant of which was a GOP project implemented in the MAVIR-BME consortium. The knowledge and simulation tools accumulated during these projects have enabled the members of the team to work in H2020 projects in this field (this is currently underway), and since then we have been a key partner of industrial players (e.g. MEKH, MVM, MAVIR) on a number of issues at the domestic level. Our new result is the further development and practical implementation of the theory of cooptimalized markets.
In the period starting in 2016, within the framework of the FIEK project, we introduced another new specialty field: the control of power electronics according to system-level criteria and their impact on system dynamics is a fundamentally important and perspective area, without a previously significant domestic base. We are working on special inverter control solutions for the stable operation of the power electronics-based electricity system of the future. We have created a lab infrastructure unique to the region, enabling (P)HIL simulations, rapid prototyping of grid-connected power electronics, (P)HILco-simulation of power systems and ICT, and cybersecurity testing.

The BME FASTER RECORD research group, which bears the name “Reimagining the EleCtric pOwer gRiD”, strives to transform the vision of the electric power networks. It can be seen that the current network has reached the limits for which it was designed decades ago, and we are in a critical period where we all have a professional responsibility to play a role in transforming the network. The research group emphasizes that one should not rely solely on past experiences and that a paradigm shift is needed.
The goal of the BME FASTER RECORD research group is to show a new direction in the reconstruction of the electricity network created after World War II, developing innovative scientific methodologies and procedures, which provide useful assistance to the profession and industry not only from a theoretical point of view, but also from an application support point of view. Using nearly 20 years of experience, the research group strives to model electricity networks with different voltage levels in stationary and dynamic time domains, in multiple modeling environments, with the goal of increasing stability and reliability.
The BME FASTER RECORD research group pays special attention to the careful conception of the long-term planning necessary for the reliable operation of the electricity network, given that this is one of the most important critical infrastructures. Using a scientific approach, the research group investigates strategic planning, highlighting key issues of everyday operational support, such as ensuring frequency and voltage stability, forecasting and accurate value determination, managing bottlenecks and knowing and mapping the effects of dynamic changes.
KDP: István Vokony won the Doctoral Student Scholarship of the NKFIH Cooperative Doctoral Program in 2023 with his research entitled Sustainable corporate management models using disruptive technologies in the energy sector. The research carried out at the Doctoral School of Economics and Organizational Sciences brings closer the industrial applicability of technical results, with a scientific approach.
Bolyai: Between 2023-2026, Bálint Hartmann is developing network vulnerability models with predictive tools within the framework of the János Bolyai Research Scholarship of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
Bolyai+: Bálint Hartmann is working on the integration of the results of the research into graduate and postgraduate training within the framework of the support received as a supplement to the János Bolyai Research Scholarship.
OTKA: members of the research group participate in Zoltán Tamus Ádám’s OTKA Research Program. The aim of the program is to investigate the effect of cyclic overloads on the degradation of the PVC insulation of distribution cables due to the increasing expansion of renewable energy sources.
In 2019, Bálint Hartmann won the Youth Award of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences for his project “Utilization of renewable energy sources at different scales”.
Aim of our Lendület Grant in cooperation with E.ON is to develop a state estimator based modular toolset to support the transformation of the Hungarian low-voltage distribution network to a future-proof, smart, innovative, flexible and modern grid.
Our longtime cooperation with DSOs focus on modelling, simulation, business aspects and cost-benefit analysis of the transforming sector. Highlights of previous years include expert work on network development strategies, assessment of energy storage and e-mobility business potentials, development of microgrid services and islanded power supply based on renewable energy sources.
