Chair of Power Electronics

Welcome to the Chair of Power Electronics

We believe in the power of science towards research and teaching to enhance the society bottom line. 

We do research in cooperation with industry, we believe in the importance of fully validating our findings through experimental work and when possible in publishing them to improve ourselves accepting the deep criticism of the international scientific community.

We do teaching believing in the importance of a fully theoretical analysis and motivating students towards a project-solving approach.

We are funded by: 


  • Our research is focused on the design of high efficient and reliable PWM-based power converter architectures (single-cell, multi-cell, multilevel), their modelling and control to exploit commercial as well as new power semiconductor devices with minimum over design.
    We develop controllers for electric drives and we are particularly skilled in the integration of renewable energy systems into the electric grid.
    Please discover our expertise looking to our recent projects.
