Chair of Power Electronics


Andrii Chub is a Visiting Research Fellow in the Chair of Power Electronics of the Kiel University for a period from January to July 2017. He is in charge of development of a high-power medium-voltage prototype of the cascaded semi-modular three-phase solid-state transformer.
He received the B.Sc. degree in Electronics and M.Sc. degree in Electronic Systems from Chernihiv State Technological University, Chernihiv, Ukraine, in 2008 and 2009 respectively. In 2016, he received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Tallinn University of Technology, Tallinn, Estonia.
He is employed as a Researcher at the Department of Electrical Power Engineering and Mechatronics, Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia. He has co-authored more than 50 papers and a book chapter on power electronics and applications. Besides that, he holds several patents and utility models. His research interests include dc-dc and dc-ac converters, impedance source electric energy conversion technology, implementation of the new wide bandgap semiconductors in power electronic converters, renewable energy conversion systems for energy efficient residential buildings, and converter topologies for solid-state transformers.



  • 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.
