Power electronics technology plays a critical role in the green transition of modern energy systems. Power electronic systems, equipped with digital controllers, enable flexible control of electric power. In recent years, the evolution of power semiconductor devices and the advances in digital technologies bring even higher controllability of the system. This project intends to exploit those advances and, particularly the edge computing and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, for a system-level optimizations of power-electronic-based energy systems. Both physics-based and data-driven approaches will be investigated in the project. The edge Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies will be explored to redefine the control of power converters, considering a wide range of operating conditions. The project will be industry-oriented and have close collaborations with the global industry leaders. Both AI programming skills and power-electronics hardware testing experiences are essential to the project.
