Control of High-Frequency Power Electronic Systems
Smart Houses Currently Envision High-Frequency Power Electronic Systems in Their Power Processing Units
High-Frequency Power Electronic Systems (HFPESs) are integral parts of any power processing unit used in smart grid applications which is currently a hot area of research at the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Southern. Led by Dr. Massoud Davari, and in collaboration with Dr. Weinan Gao , pioneering research efforts are conducted to analyze and synthesize modern controllers making use of the high-frequency capability of HFPES developed by Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC), Inc.—leading provider of gallium nitride (GaN)-based power management technology. Dr. Alex Lidow, the chief executive officer (CEO) at EPC has provided Dr. Davari with cutting-edge development boards to be integrated into his hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) tested system using a scaled-down HFPES prototype to advance research in this emerging field of high-speed switching power technology.
