Chair of Power Electronics

Welcome to the Chair of Power Electronics

Prof. Dr. Liserre receives the Mittelmann Achievement Award

On 22 October Prof. Dr. Liserre received the 2018 Mittelmann Achievement Award in recognition of his attainment in development of power electronic systems for distributed generation and power quality improvement.


We believe in the power of science towards research and teaching to enhance the society bottom line. 
We do research in cooperation with industry, we believe in the importance of fully validating our findings through experimental work and when possible in publishing them to improve ourselves accepting the deep criticism of the international scientific community.
We do teaching believing in the importance of a fully theoretical analysis and motivating students towards a project-solving approach.
