EPIC-Energy Processing and Integrated Circuits



  • Analog microelectronic design:

- Nonlinear controllers for switching power processors
- Switching converters integration
- Switched Power RF Amplifers for 3G mobile communications
- Tuning-on-chip continuous-time analog filters
- Communication circuits

  • Switching power converters control

Modelling, design and control (linear and nonlinear) of DC-DC and DC-AC power conversion systems. Application to renewable energy based distributed generation:
- Grid-connected photovoltaic systems
- Modular power conversion architectures: series-parallel association of power processors.
- Photovoltaic reconfigurable systems for energy extraction optimization.

  • Facilities:

- EPIC research labs:
- Photovoltaic systems and power electronics
- IC design: CAD tools/ Europractice foundry access
- Technical support for grant applications
- Cooperation with other research groups
- Large experience in courses and tutorships at Master and Ph.D. levels
