Congratulations Dragan Maksimovic! 2023 IEEE Newell Power Electronics Award Winner

2023 TFA Newell Slide FB LICongratulations IEEE PELS Member, Dragan Maksimovic who received the 2023 IEEE William E. Newell Power Electronics Award

For contributions to digital control, modeling, and topologies of switched-mode power supplies

Dragan Maksimovic has made numerous fundamental contributions to power electronics, particularly in the practical implementation of digital control for switched-mode power supplies. His work on mixed-signal power ICs laid the foundation for a new paradigm in power supply control and enabled many new applications. The technologies he developed brought digital control into the mainstream of the switched-mode power supply industry and, today, his developments have influenced mobile devices and data centers. His work in the converter topologies and control area includes the synthesis of new DC-DC and AC-DC converter topologies, nonlinear carrier control of PFC rectifiers, and small-signal modeling of the discontinuous conduction mode.

An IEEE Fellow, Maksimovic is the Charles V. Schelke Endowed Professor in the Department of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering, University of Colorado, Boulder, Colorado, USA.
