Chair of Power Electronics


Nimrod V´azquez (M’98–SM’11) was born in Mexico City, Mexico, in 1973. He received the B.S. degree in electronics engineering from the Instituto Tecnol´ogico de Celaya, Celaya, Mexico, in 1994, and the M.Sc. degree in electronics engineering and Dr. Ing. degree in electronics from the Centro Nacional de Investigaci ´on y Desarrollo Tecnol´ogico, Cuernavaca, Mexico, in 1997 and 2003, respectively. Since 1998, he has been with the Department of the Electronics Engineering, Instituto Tecnol´ogico de Celaya. His research interests include dc/ac converters, power-factor correction, nonlinear control techniques, and renewable energy.


  • 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.
