Abstract:

Power Electronics interfaces play an important role in our day-to-day life. Recently, the use of advanced power electronic conversion is
becoming more popular in renewable, green, reliable and efficient energy systems in order to mainly reduce green house gas emission and dependency on depleting fossil fuel reserves. A large number of power converter configurations are in use or under research for such stand alone and grid connected applications. This talk will emphasis on selected class of converters related to speaker's background. Briefly highlighting the general applications, it will concentrate more on specific converter topological issues, associated control and modulation requirements.

About the speaker:

Dr. Dipankar De received PhD degree from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India in 2011 with specialization in Power Electronics. From 2011 to 2014, Dr. De was with the University of Nottingham, UK where he was responsible for power converter design for photo-voltaic, energy storage, and helicopter applications. Presently he works as a research fellow for the Ryerson University, Canada. His primary research interest includes converter topologies and control for power electronics applications.
