ECPE workshop on "Smart Transformers for Traction and Future Grid Application" in Zurich, Switzerland

ECPE Workshop 2016 in Zurich

On 4-5 Feb. 2016 the ECPE workshop on "Smart Transformers for Traction and Future Grid Application" was held in Zurich, Switzerland. The workshop was chaired by Prof. Kolar (ETH Zurich) and Prof. Liserre. Among the 122 participants from universities and global well-known companies, four members of the chair of power electronics (M. Liserre, G. De Carne, M. Andresen, L. Ferreira Costa) participated the workshop and gave two presentations. Prof. Liserre reported about system level challenges of Smart transformers, while Levy Ferreira Costa and Markus Andresen presented the HEART approach: Reliability through Energy Routing.
