The Power Electronics Laboratory at University of California, Irvine, is a modern research facility. It is equipped with the state-of-the-art instrumentation for design, simulation, layout, prototyping, and testing of switching/analog circuits. The research in the Power Electronics Laboratory at UCI involves modeling, control, topologies, and integration of switching converters, inverters, class-D power amplifiers, soft switching techniques, single-phase and three-phase power factor correction methods, power conversion for alternative energy sources, etc. Our research goal is to find simple, elegant, and effective solutions to fundamental and persistent engineering problems, to generalize our theoretical findings, and to provide engineering design guidelines to industry. During this process, we guide our students on the path of becoming authorities in the field of Power Electronics.
Provide PSMA Member Companies a resource to identify Educational and University Institutions, world wide, which have ongoing and active programs in power electronics. This will provide the Member Companies a source for attracting potential new employees and opportunity for possible partnering on Research and Development projects.
Provide the Educational and University Institutions an opportunity to promote their programs in power electronics to interested companies outside their immediate areas. This exposure could result in generating additional support for the institution from the power sources industry for ongoing and new programs. In addition the exposure will provide the students and graduates with additional options as they transition from the educational to the business community.
