CPES Partnership with PEMC at University of Nottingham

Dushan Boroyevich

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.

Under this international partnership, CPES and VTTI (Virginia Tech Transportation Institute) will collaborate with the University of Nottingham’s Transportation Engineering Centre and its Power Electronics, Machines and Control (PEMC) Research Group to enhance strategic research and educational relationships. The initiative would allow a series of exchanges between the two institutions, as well as post-doctoral research appointments.

Jon Clare

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.

To foster deeper understanding of PEMC's research focus, CPES has invited Jon Clare, Professor of Power Electronics and Head of the PEMC Research Group, to give an invited plenary talk at the upcoming 2011 CPES Conference, April 3-5. Prof. Clare’s invited talk is entitled, “Trends in Power Electronics Research - a University of Nottingham Perspective.”
