EE467/567 Integrated Power © 2010, D. C. Hopkins [email protected] Research & professional activities Research & professional activities Research: Electronic energy processing systems for High frequency -- up to 10’s of MHz High density -- physical realization (packaging) High temperature -- New SiC (III-IV) devices Topics for MS/Ph.D. thesis (full time) High voltage packaging for SMART GRID Applications*. Very advanced Simulate, design and fabricate a high temp gate driver for SiC JFets/MosFets ‘Optimal Designer’ of autonomous, alternative-energy supplied systems Electromagnetic modeling of energy interconnects* High Temperature operation of heavily doped silicon devices HELP -- Course graders/prepare lectures/probems/projects Spring Workshop in PLECS simulation tool, Buffalo -- organize, publicize, execute, etc. *Significant physical/mechanical requirements EE467/567 Integrated Power © 2010, D. C. Hopkins [email protected] Preface Preface Expanding energy area - New mantra: Electronic Energy Processing (EEP) More than 60% of electrical energy is processed with power electronics Areas generally divide into Motor drives Power supplies Lighting Pulse power Utility power - Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS) These support higher level systems, e.g. Whole Building Controls: Motor drives for fans, pumps and compressors Electronically variable lighting systems Pulsed/HV power for air filtration P.S. and FACTS combine for Uninterruptible Power Supplies (UPSs) Power electronics is a relatively new field, recognized about 25 years ago New identity: Integrated Electronic Energy Processing: microwatts to megawatts
