CPES Partnership with PEMC at University of Nottingham
Virginia Tech’s College of Engineering and the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom have been selected to collaborate in a strategic research and international education partnership. The initiative is funded by the British Council for Relations with Other Countries. Building upon the seed funding from the British Council, CPES Co-Director, Dushan Boroyevich, worked with Virginia Tech’s transportation group to win this proposal.
CPES has had long-time association with the Power Electronics, Machines and Control (PEMC) Research Group at Nottingham, led by Jon Clare and Pat Wheeler, professors at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Regarded as two of the world’s leading and largest research groups in power electronics, their expertise spans all key power electronic disciplines, from power devices and component technology to complete electronic power conversion systems.
