Power Electronics Laboratory

Solving environmental issues by honing power electronics control technology

Power electronics is a technological field that fuses power, electronic and controlling technologies in order to ensure a high-level control of energy flows. Moreover, the field is essential to help mitigate the problem of global warming. Therefore, our laboratory is making complete use of the power electronics technology in order to make electricity and hot water from various energy sources as a way to address environmental issues and construct disaster countermeasures.
