Rolls-Royce Electrical (RRE)

Rolls-Royce Electrical – Singapore (RRE-SG) has developed a number of significant capabilities during the previous phase of RR@NTU Corp Lab Program. The pull-through of the R&D for the Corp Lab will be towards applied development either into RR, partner research organizations, including demonstrators like the Renewable Energy Integration Demonstrator Singapore (REIDS) microgrid.

These capabilities have been developed in close collaboration with the various business sectors of Rolls-Royce. RRE-SG is now looking to bring these capabilities to a higher level during the next phase of the Corp Lab and develop several new technologies.

The primary focus will be on developing industrial power electronics solutions for aerospace and other Rolls-Royce applications. Other key research R&D areas are energy storage, power and energy systems, microgrids, electromechanical systems, electrical equipment and system health management, high fidelity modelling and simulation for power electronics based systems.
