The Chair of Power Electronics focuses its research on the design and applications of power electronics systems and in 2015 comprised 20 people among Ph.D. and Post-doc supervised by Prof. Marco Liserre, with a collected budget greater than 6 million euro. The main research areas are: power converters for MW applications, design for reliability and active thermal control, smart grids and drives for aerospace and high-speed appliances. The Chair features a laboratory equipped with electric drives, machines up to 90 kW, test benches with AC and DC loads, electronic instrumentation and a Power Hardware in the Loop setup with Real Time Digital Simulator and linear amplifier. A medium voltage laboratory with 3 test cells with 10 kV connection is under development.
