Main Research:

  • Grid Integration of Wind Turbines
  • Energy Storage Systems for Wind Turbines
  • Research

    • 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.
