Chair of Power Electronics

Welcome to the Chair of Power Electronics

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.

IEEE PELS Sustainable Energy Systems Technical Achievement Award 2017:

Prof. Liserre has been selected as the 2017 winner of IEEE Power Electronics Society's Sustainable Energy Systems Award. This is in acknowledgement for Prof. Liserre's “contributions to control of renewable energy system in the power grid".

New High Speed Thermal Measurement System for Semiconductor Reliability Analysis

Problem Based Learning (PBL) at CAU:

To enable closer integration of teaching, research and practice, Prof. Marco Liserre with his experience of Problem Based Learning (PBL) method has successfully introduced the PBL model from Denmark to CAU. This method has been internationally recognized by Universities, researchers and students as an efficient teaching and learning method

We are member of:


We are funded by: 


  • 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.
