The Integrated Power Electronics Laboratory (IPEL) is a research laboratory for applied research related to power electronics. Our research activities cover the areas from power semiconductor devices and technology to power integrated circuits and systems, and currently concentrate on low to medium power applications (sub-KW) that are related to ballasts, DC-DC converters, and telecommunications. The laboratory is equipped with high voltage power supplies, current probes, power meters, high voltage curve tracer, high voltage pulse generator, power device parameter analyzer, Sun Ultrasparc workstations, etc., for design and characterization of power devices and circuits.

Current research activities

  • Analysis and modeling of switch mode power converters.
  • Design of dimmable electronic ballasts and power factor correctors.
  • Implementation and analysis of switched-capacitor power converters.
  • Design of power modules for telecommunication applications.
  • Design of high / low voltage power semiconductor devices for power management and control applications.
  • Design of integrated circuit technology for high voltage applications.
  • Design of RF power amplifiers for wireless communications.
  • Design of high voltage display driver circuits.
