Job Description

The candidate will work closely with a team of staff and students to accomplish the research and laboratory prototype development of a modular multilevel dc-dc power converter. Duties and responsibilities for this job are as follows:

  • Study the topology and operating principles of the modular multilevel dc-dc converter for use in future dc power collection grids;
  • Investigate submodule and arm energy balancing control strategies for the modular multilevel dc-dc converter controlled under square-wave and quasi square-wave modulation schemes;
  • Modeling, control, and stability analysis of the modular multilevel dc-dc converter in dc power collection grid;
  • Hardware-in-the-loop simulation to verify the accuracy of circuit parameter design and the performance of proposed control strategies;
  • Hardware design and software development of the control system based on a hybrid DSP-FPGA platform and the DSP/BIOS real-time operating system;
  • Power circuit design, selection of semiconductor power switches and passive components;
  • Site test of the converter prototype in a scaled-down dc grid test system;
  • Contribute to conference/journal publications and project reports


  • PhD degree in Electrical Engineering or related subjects.
