Hybrid and electric vehicles and photovoltaic sys-
tems for the efficient use of renewable energies
require innovative components and circuits. Their
development presents growing challenges for
power and micro electronics. The Robert Bosch
Center for Power Electronics (rbz) was newly es-
tablished in 2009 to improve and expand research
and teaching in a network comprised of the Bosch
Group, Reutlingen University and the University of
Stuttgart. This unique cooperation is the first of its
kind in Germany. It prepares young engineers for
the new challenges that lie ahead in developing
technology for the electric mobility and renewable
energy industries of the future.
The research focus of the University of Stuttgart
is on components, semi-conductors and drive
technology. At Reutlingen University of Applied
Sciences the research includes computer-based
circuit design, power electronics components
and integrated circuits. In order to set up and
operate the rbz, the Bosch Group, the state of
Baden-Wuerttemberg and the universities are to
invest a total of more than EUR 30 million by 2020
for new academic chairs and infrastructure. At
the start of 2013, a new institute was founded at
rbz’s University of Stuttgart location, in addition to
the two existing academic chairs. rbz has its own
site in Reutlingen, with lecture rooms and labs on
about 1,300 m² – excellent conditions for teach-
ing and research.
