The IPEK Institute of Product Engineering at the
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) has its
core competencies in academic research and
application-oriented engineering in the areas
of product development methods and process-
es, drive technology systems and components
as well as sustainable mobility solutions. With
its team of currently 90 employees headed by
Professor Albers, the IPEK institute acts as a
research and development partner for many
well-established strategic partnerships (OEMs,
systems suppliers and SMEs) from the auto-
mobile industry. In numerous projects directly
related to practical applications, the focus is
on solutions and methodical approaches that
make a measurable contribution to value-add-
ing and to the industrialisation of innovative
technologies in sustainable mobility.
The IPEK institute researches e-mobility is-
sues utilising knowledge and model-based
approaches with a focus on electric energy
storage and drive systems. It also searches for
new mobility concepts and validation methods
and processes, with the aim of balancing the
aspects of energy efficiency, driving behaviour,
NVH and safety. In addition to high-voltage en-
ergy storage devices which are designed from
the sketch up and multi-criteria optimised,
the institute also examines vehicle system re-
quirements investigating its interactions with
system components. The institute also designs
innovative subsystems and finalises them for
industrial realisation.
