Power Electronics Laboratory
Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
University of California, Irvine
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, single phase and three-phase active power filters, 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.
UCI Power Electronics Laboratory enjoys world wide reputation for its innovative research, unique industrial applications, and high quality graduate students.
