Norwegian partner

The Department of Electric Power Engineering at the Norges teknisk-naturvitenskapelige universitet (NTNU) will be the #Norwegian partner in the MoReSiC – Project consortium. It is among the international leaders for #teaching and #research within its field. Strong-point areas include energy technology, energy consumption and energy planning.

From the department of Electric Power Engineering, the #PowerElectronics Systems and Components research group will be involved in the MoReSiC project and in particular Associate Professor Dimosthenis Peftitsis, who will be the NTNU project manager. The focus of his research is on medium-voltage power electronics technologies and medium voltage grid components (i.e. DC breakers), SiC-based #powerconverters for high-efficiency operation, reliability assessment and lifetime modelling of high-power Silicon and SiC #semiconductors.

Among these focal areas, modularized DC/DC converter design, optimization and testing for medium-voltage direct current (MVDC) distribution grids is a prioritized activity within the group. It is envisaged that this activity will be further enhanced through the MoReSiC project.
