Advanced Modulation Techniques for Power Converters and Vehicle Propulsion Systems

The HVDC Research Centre performs innovative research and development in high-voltage DC (HVDC) and power electronic technologies, instrumentation and simulation. HVDC is committed to finding new methods to improve efficiency in equipment usage and electric power flow. One such application is conversion and shaping of voltage waveforms, which is generally referred to as “modulation”. The intern’s project in engineering optimization will study, analyze and develop advanced switching control algorithms for drive systems and power electronics while meeting the required performance characteristics defined by industry standards and accepted by the Centre.
