Mr Georgios Kafanas

Variable structure system theory allow for a new approach in the design of power electronics. Traditionally the design of power electronics has been based on linear control theory. As the number of switches and the complexity of the passive element networks are increasing in new topologies, the traditional design approach is leaving many opportunities for performance gains unexplored. My research focusses in developing frameworks for the design of power electronics with variable structure controllers and exploring how performance gains can be achieved with these new design methods.
