Power Electronics Institute
Website

Faculty expertise from both power systems and power electronics is frequently combined in research activities. Power systems research is performed in the areas of analysis, reliability, monitoring, control and protection of power systems. Some of the faculty also have a strong interest in control systems, digital signal processing, data communications, and intelligent system applications. Power electronics research is performed in the areas of motor drives, power electronic converters, utility interface issues, active filters and electric and hybrid vehicles. Some of the faculty also have a strong interest in power quality and diagnostics of electrical machines.

Two major efforts constitute the program:

  • Power Systems
  • Power Electronics
