Research Interests

  • Power Electronics and Control
    Power electronics system consists of switching electronic circuits to control and convert the electric power. Power electronics technology is the basis of many power electronics applications including switching power supplies, energy conversion systems, high power ultrasound system excitation and pulsed power.
  • Pulsed Power
    Pulsed power technology refers to the of very short high power electrical pulses. Pulsed power is an emerging technology can be effectively applied in many industrial and bioelectric applications such as water treatment, food processing, sterilization. The pulse parameters can highly influence the effectiveness of pulse power systems. Power electronics systems are usually applied to generate desired pulses.
  • Ultrasound Systems
    Ultrasound systems are found to be effective technologies in several applications due to their ability mechanical energy in electrical energy and vice versa. To achieve efficient energy conversion performance of these systems, excitation systems should be designed properly considering operating frequency, power level, load conditions.
