Chair of Power Electronics


Sante Pugliese received the M.Sc. degree in automation engineering from the Politecnico di Bari, Italy, in 2013, where he is currently pursuing the Ph.D. degree and he has been with the Converters, Electrical Machines, and Drives Research Team since 2013. His research interests include power converters and control techniques for distributed power generation systems based on renewable energies.



  • 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.
