Power Electronics Laboratory

Our research deals with the design, optimization and control of power converters and power converter systems. We design solutions that improve the energy efficiency, the dynamic performance, the accuracy and the cost of the system. Conversion losses are reduced by using new converter structures, smaller and lighter filters and by optimizing the overall system. The dynamic performance and accuracy are improved using control techniques such as model predictive control (MPC), estimation and filtering techniques such as Kalman filters.
