Carving Strategies to Effectively Serve the Global Membership

 by Frede Blaabjerg

Human life is always moving in waves. Sometimes it is calm, and sometimes it is quite hectic and hectic and busy when many issues must be confronted. The last few months (May to July) have been very busy for the IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS). Although most of the time it was good, there were also some challenges. Read More...

Zichao Ye Photo croppedAbstract: This seminar will cover the topic of hybrid and resonant switched-capacitor (SC) power converters. This class of converters has received increased attention lately, owing to superior power density and efficiency compared to conventional approaches. Starting with an overview and analysis of conventional SC power converters, the concept of the fast and slow switching limits will be introduced, and the limitations and design constraints of SC converters will be highlighted.
