At the division for electricity, Uppsala University research is performed on generators, electrical systems and control systems for wind power. The research is focused on permanent magnet generators with full converters.

Some research topics include:
-Permanent magnet generator design
-Loss evaluation for permanent magnet generators at variable speed
-Demagnetization risk of permanent magnets in generators
-Alternative materials as permanent magnets in generators: ferrites and novel materials
-Electrical system design
-Interaction between generator and electrical system
-Control strategies for variable speed wind turbines
