Etopia - European Training network Of PhD researchers on Innovative EMI analysis and power Applications.

Our modern society becomes highly interconnected where power supply is not only providing energy between many distributed sources and loads but are also a main path of interference, especially in large complex systems, platforms and facilities, where interoperability of the electronic systems has to be achieved. There is an urgent need to train new researchers with a closer interaction of electrical power and power electronics with information technology and communications equipment. The ETOPIA consortium of key academic partners, supported by industry, has been brought together not only to train a sufficient number of qualified researchers but also to provide the fundamental research that underpins future technological developments. 


ETOPIA is organized along three research lines which are organised in work packages (WP).
WP1-4 are for management, training, dissemination and outreach.
WP5 Non-conventional modelling and measurements.
WP6 Multi-domain optimization and,
WP7 EM-Coxistence.

Objective: Successful and efficient project execution according to work plan, maintenance of relations between partners and ESRs, communication management, finance and reporting.

Objective: Create a European Doctoral/Graduate School for EMC, incl. PQ, with a focus on conducted emissions. Develop structural doctoral programme for future generation of researchers/engineers active in Europe; Change the mind-set of researchers and engineers from power frequency-design to holistic power quality.

Objective: Disseminate the results of ETOPIA to the academic, teaching, industrial and public communities in Europe. Create and tarck the Data Management Plan. Establish a solid exploitation plan for future market introduction of power quality and EMC design. Embed the ETOPIA doctoral programme in the institutional/regular Graduate schools.

Objective: These are dissemination and communication initiatives directed at the general public with the primary goal to create awareness of the importance of research to society and to raise awareness of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, based on the principle ‘’public engagement’’ of the 'European Charter for Researchers'.

Objective: Develop new models and simulate large power energy systems. Develop procedure to predict from measured conducted values the transient behaviour. Introducing methods of risk analysis.

Objective: To deliver tools and methodologies for parallel and multidomain design, for functional performance as well as for interference, in order to optimize devices, platforms and systems.

Objective: To deliver tools and methodologies for fast prediction of risks of interference in large complex systems and networks.
