The research of the ESAT-ELECTA branch of the KU Leuven University covers a broad spectrum of electrical energy systems and the robust control of electrotechnical systems. More specifically, this group concentrates on the study of power systems, power quality, power electronics, information infrastructure and socio-economic issues. In this regard, the development of a future smart grid is a key objective.

The marine research component of this group concerns the techno-economic aspects of the energy production by offshore wind mills. In the future, ESAT-ELECTA will also focus on the following topics: expansion of offshore electricity networks, exploiting offshore electricity systems, coupling offshore networks to onshore networks and lastly, the storage of energy offshore.

Together with the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO) and the Interuniversity Microelectronics Centre (IMEC), ELECTA is a co-founder of EnergyVille, a knowledge center which carries out research regarding renewable energy. The research group participates in several projects, including the Nemo Link project (electricity connection between Belgium and the United Kingdom).
