The List

University of Toledo
Program Description:

UT offers a two semester course sequence in power electronics for seniors and grad students. The second semester course includes a lab. There also is a grad course on converters that includes state space averaging and
linearization. Three one semester courses on electric power systems analysis also are available.
This program has been in operation for over 25 years, the first 15 of which it received continuous funding from NASA and USAF, primarily for dc-dc converter research. For the past 10 years, the main focus of the program has been on
electric vehicle research with continuous funding from the automotive industry or DOE. Most of this research activity has been concerned with battery management systems. In addition to power electronics, there is a heavy emphasis on microcontroller hardware using CAN communication systems.

There are 2 faculty in power electronics, and one in electric power systems.

Student body description:

Starting next year, the first power electronics course will be required for all seniors, so it will enroll about 50 students per year.
Grad enrollment is typically 3-5 students, most of whom are usually supported by external research grants.
