Energy Systems and Power Electronics Lab

University of British Columbia Okanagan

This laboratory focuses on the research area of power electronics, which is an enabling technology for advanced energy applications. It is a critical part of nearly all electronic devices including, but not limited to industrial processes, portable devices, efficient motors, alternative and renewable energy conversion, electric vehicles and lighting. The area itself is quite broad requiring expertise in switching power converters, semiconductor devices, analog and digital control theory, passive components and electromagnetics.

The Energy Systems and Power Electronics Laboratory's present interests are in the development, simulation and modeling of improved switching power converters for low and medium power applications using techniques such as synchronous rectification, soft-switching, resonant power conversion, resonant gate drive and advanced control techniques.
