IEEE PELS Continues on a Path Envisioned by Our Late Past President Braham Ferreira

by Liuchen Chang
Early in the summer, our power electronics community was deeply saddened by the sudden passing on 16 May, 2021 of Prof. Jan Abraham (Braham) Ferreira, past president of IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) (2015-16), after his courageous and brief battle with cancer. A leader, educator, mentor, and friend to so many in our community, Braham was a true gentleman of great accomplishments,  Read More...

Abstract: The need to minimize environmental impact of the transportation sector has fueled the electrification trend. A key factor that enables the electrification is the development of power electronics and embedded systems. However, with progress comes challenges that need to be addressed by the research and development community in a very short timeframe. These challenges include optimizing the performance indices such as power density, costs, losses, and failure rate. Understanding the system and translating it into mathematical models with different levels of fidelity that suits a particular problem is critical. This will speed up the development cycle. Moreover, a good model can be easily reused in follow-up projects.
