The research in the Power Electronics and Electric Drives laboratory at UW-Milwaukee is focused on applications of power electronics and motor drives in two fields: renewable energy and medical instrumentations. We perform modeling, analysis, design, control and implementation of power electronic converters on grid-tied photovoltaic systems and wind turbines w/o energy storage devices. We also utilize digital control of converters and motor drives using digital signal processors (DSP) and microprocessors in medical instrumentations and interface for electro-mechanical and electro-chemical systems.
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.
