Research

research overview

  • Dr. Erickson's research focuses on new approaches to control and convert electrical power with ultra-high efficiency, with application to renewable energy systems and other applications of electrical power. This research incorporates advances in magnetics technology and modeling with advances in power conversion circuitry to push the limits of achievable system efficiency. He has recently applied these results to demonstrate new building-integrated photovoltaic power systems that maximize energy harvest with complex building geometries, and also to demonstrate new power electronics architectures that substantially reduce the loss in electric vehicle drivetrains.
