Design Cycle for power electronic systems: from simulation to hardware implementation

Industrial Systems have become increasingly complex and hence their design requires extensive new tools and techniques. Computers and computer simulations play an important role in helping the design engineers in finding suitable solutions to the design of modern industrial systems. This Mitacs-Accelerate internship aims to improve the methods and techniques used in the computer aided design of power electronic systems incorporating optimization and combining it with a simulation program. It is expected the research will place the Manitoba HVDC Research Centre in a better position to supply its clients in the growingly important field of power and energy with a superior product that can enhance the design of future infrastructure.
