Main Research:

  • Interactions between distributed generations in non linear power grids
  • Operational behavior, stability and disturbance propagation of power grids highly penetrated by power inverters

  • 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.
