The objective of this research theme is to realize miniaturization, high performance, high power density, and high efficiency of next-generation inverters and power supplies by researching and developing circuit systems that take advantage of the superior performance of WBG devices to the utmost limit and applying optimal passive components.
Applied products include motor drive inverters for EVs, small and medium-sized inverters for industrial use, and power supplies for data centers, which are widely used in society to handle small and medium power ranges.
Tohoku University, which is the representative institution, Ibaraki University and Waseda University, which are research-sharing institutions, and an advisory board as a cooperating company will promote research and development on five sub-themes that are important for power electronics research.
By advancing these research and development efforts, we will create next-generation power electronics technologies and products that will lead the world and contribute to the realization of a decarbonized society.
