Area of Focus

The Power Electronics and Energy Systems faculty conduct research in several areas like:

  • Electric Power Converters
  • Energy Storage Devices
  • Power Electronic Devices



FCCS Laboratory Integration, Angle View

Seahorse II Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV)

Complete GEM Fuel Cell Hybrid (FCH), Side View


  • Power Electronics Lab
  • Electric Machines Lab


  • Electronic Power Supplies
  • Hybrid Electric Vehicles
  • Fuel Cell Vehicles
  • Alternative Energy Systems


Dr. Stuart's research is in the areas of Power Electronics and Alternative Energy.

Dr. King's research is in the areas of Power Electronic Circuit Design and Modeling.

Dr. Raghav Khanna's research is in the areas of Wide bandgap semiconductor device modeling for next generation power electronic circuits, renewable energy systems, electric vehicular power conversion circuits, and maximum power point tracking for photovoltaic power conversion circuits.
