Power Electronics and Power Systems

Power and energy systems research emphasizes all aspects of electrical energy, innovation in energy generation and delivery, alternative resources, and efficient devices. Research projects address systems and devices for the conversion, delivery, and use of energy in electrical form. The activity ranges from controls for large utility systems to energy harvesting devices for micro-sensors. Electrical energy continues to be the foundation of the modern economy. The growth of solar energy, wind energy, and other resources, combined with trends such as electric and hybrid vehicles will a have profound impact on global society.
