Interdisciplinary Research Centre

Cambridge’s power electronics community builds on fundamental physics and material science to develop and understand power conversion materials, devices and systems. Efficient power conversion and distribution networks are vital to applications in the national grid, local energy conversion, communications technologies, aerospace, space, data centres and smart buildings.

Research areas include: materials and devices for power electronics, power conversion systems, smart grids, power management.


Some key centres and initiatives include:


Researchers working in this area:

Prof Ionnis Lestas Professor of Control Engineering

Prof Teng Long

Professor of Power Electronics 

Prof Florin Udrea

Professor of Semiconductor Engineering
