Day 8: High power electronics & systems

22 June 2017

EnergyDays are English spoken!

The topic 'High power electronics & systems' will be presented by the Electromechanics and Power Electronics group (EPE), department Electrical Engineering, TU/e. The group is chaired by Prof. E.A. (Elena) Lomonova.


Modern power electronic converters allow to provide electrical energy processing in a very efficient way in many applications including solar and wind energy conversion, hybrid and electric cars, high-performance computer power supplies, switching audio amplifiers, solid-state lighting, utility control and smart grids, portable power, and many others. The goal of the energy days is to present and discuss the state-of-the-art concepts for switching power conversion (developed at the Technical University of Eindhoven), including various topologies for many applications, their operation and control choices, harmonics and filtering, circuit models of real sources and devices, magnetics design, and passive and active component behavior.
