PhD examination Nils Hoffmann

Dec 11, 2014

On 01.12.2014 Nils Hoffmann passed his PhD examination on the subject: "Grid Adaptive Control and Active Filter Functionality of Grid Connected Converters in Renewable Energy Generation", supervised by Prof. Fuchs. Congratulations from the team. The thesis will be published in the university open internet library probably in February 2015.



  • 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.
