Power Electronics in Energy Conversion - Latest Advances

Speaker:  Dr Teng Long, Department of Engineering, University of Cambidge


Wide Band Gap (WBG) devices such as Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) have been widely considered as the next generation of power semiconductors. To unlock their full potential, design of power converters needs to be revisited and modified. This talk will introduce novel technologies in switching modulation, magnetic components, and converter integration which transfer the advantageous physical properties of WBG devices into high efficiency and high power density energy conversion. Emerging appliciations enabled by WBG devices such as wireless power transfer for EVs and ultra-high power density 48V DC systems for datacentres will also be introduced, Examples and results used for the aforementioned technologies and applications are exclusively from the Applied Power Electronics Laboratory in Cambridge.


Dr Long is an expert in power electronics, power conversion systems, electric vehicles (cars trains, ships, aircraft), electricla energy storage, renewable energy, smart gird. He has established the Applied Electronics Laboratory (The Long Group) in the Deptertment of Engineering, His research portfolio covers from power electronic devices to power converters to drive and power systems, mainly for transport electrification and renewable energy applications. Dr Long has been awarded multiple research grants  funded by the UK government as well as directly from industrial sponsors. Dr Long has built strong connections with industrial partners including the SAIC Motor, Dynex Semiconductor, STMicroelectronics, Siemens, CBMM, CRRC, Wuxi SES.
