REU Seminar: Next Generation Power Electronics

Topic: 
Next Generation Power Electronics
Tuesday, July 21, 2015 - 10:00am to 11:00pm
Venue: 
AllenX Auditorium
Speaker: 
Prof. Juan Rivas (Stanford)
Abstract / Description: 

Power supplies are everywhere from consumer electronics, to medical imaging systems, to military systems. Modern applications demand power supplies that are smart and efficient, but traditional designs are inefficient, large, noisy, and expensive. A new generation of power electronics based on very high switching frequencies is providing energy savings, extremely small size, and reduced electrical noise. As an added benefit, such designs enable operation in automotive and similar harsh environments.


The REU Seminar Series is an educational and developmental opportunity for REU participants. Attendance at the seminars is r equired for all REU interns. Speakers will discuss their research or work, provide educational and career advice, and share their knowledge with you. There will be a questions and answers period at the end of each talk. A light breakfast will be provided before each seminar. If you believe you may need accommodations during the seminar series, please contact us at reu@ee.stanford.edu so that we may find a way to accommodate your needs.
