Electrical Engineering and Electronics


Electrical Engineering at the IKDG

The electronics laboratory of the IKDG develops and maintains management and control technologies of all test stands belonging to the institute. The development and implementation of various measurement technologies are also part of its daily tasks. Another major part is the programming of required control and feedback control system technologies in different programming languages. A more detailed overview of the individual tasks is shown below.


Control and Feedback Control Systems

  • Complete electrical engineering for test stands and supply systems
  • Planning and construction of process control systems (PLS) and distributed systems (DCS)
  • Preparation of test bench- and analog controls (hardware and software)
  • SCADA applications based on PCS7, WINCC, TWINCAT, Labwindows
  • Safety concepts and systems up to SIL 3

Measurement Technology

  • Development and implementation of measurement technologies for test benches
  • Measurement systems for stationary and transient signals up to 10x109 samples per second
  • Telemetry systems, traverse systems, MC controllers
  • Board layout up to 8 layers, EPLD, CPLD, FPGA design
  • Microprocessor and microcontroller design
  • Necessary software for developed measurement techniques


  • C, C#, C++
  • Matlab, Simulink
  • Assembler
  • Verilog
  • Python
  • Java
  • … and others, depending on current requirements
