Power electronics is nowadays found in almost every system where electricity is used for computing, communication, renewable energy harvesting and transportation. It is a key technology for improving energy efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions.
Many of our projects involve integrating power electronic converters in systems dealing with modelling and optimizing the interaction between the components; such as batteries, solar cells, electrical machines and electromechanical actuators. Working as an engineer in real life you will often have to solve problems related to power quality, electromagnetic compatibility and overheating while tuning the system for best performance.
Our research focuses on battery electronics, conducted and radiated electromagnetic interference and power electronic packaging as well as on physical layer of communication systems. One special theme of the program is small solar systems with battery storage to provide off-grid electric services to 3 billion people living in energy poverty. It is a challenging research field because it not only requires innovative and reliable technology, but the solutions need to be sustainable from a socio-economical point of view.
