Chair of Power Electronics

Microprocessor Technology for Real-Time Controlling Tasks


Prof. Dr.-Ing. Marco Liserre and staff members

Target group:

Students of the master courses “Electrical and Information Engineering” and “Electrical and Information Engineering and Business Management”

Recommended prerequisites:

Power Electronics I, Control Systems I


3 SWS (2 SWS lecture, 1 SWS exercise), 4 ECTS
German (lecture), German (exercises)


The students learn about the functionality, the components and programming of microcontrollers. They will be able to design simple control circuits for applications in control theory or electrical drives. They will be able to design the controller, implement it and test it.

  • 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.
    Please discover our expertise looking to our recent projects.
