Optimal Design of Power Converters
(Initially stages funded by the EPSRC First Grant Scheme at Cardiff University, extended at Coventry University and the University of Oxford)
The aim of the project is to development a design tool for power-dense converters using efficient in-house physics-based models and commercial optimisation packages.

Efficient Physics-Based Thermal Model of Power Converters
(funded by the EPSRC Centre for Power Electronics – CPE, undertaken in collaboration with the University of Oxford)
- Thermal modelling and simulation of DC-DC converter to a high degree of accuracy utilising commercial software.
- Improve of accuracy of optimisable (efficient, physics-based) thermal models.
- Introduce approximations to liquid-cooling through pipes in addition to convective dissipation of heat.
