Power devices

Design of novel device architectures for power applications, and improving the understanding of device operation.

Nowadays virtually all electrical power passes through a power electronics device at least once on its journey from the power station to the final load.

With the widespread use of electronics in consumer, industrial, transportation sectors, power devices play a crucial role in the energy conversion process. They have a major impact on the efficiency, intelligence, cost and reliability of every electronic system.

Power semiconductor devices are key elements for delivering and controlling power efficiently and reliably to electronics and electromechanical systems.

Modern switching devices include IGBTs (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor), IGCTs (Insulated Gate Commutated Thyristor), and MOSFETs (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor).
