Our focus is to enhance power conversion systems via new dielectric materials, geometric optimization, and high frequency power electronics.
To minimize the impact of passive components within circuits.
To make electric machines more sustainable and perform better.
Wireless Power Transfer
To implement capacitive coupling for wireless power tansfer.
The Ludois Research Group, under the guidance of Dr. Daniel Ludois, is a close knit team that strives to push the boundaries of power conversion technology.
Congratulations to Andy Schroedermeier for winning a Poster Presentation award at APEC 2018! The paper associated with the poster is: A. Schroedermeier and D. C. Ludois, “Integrated Inductors, Capacitors, and Damping in Bus Bars for dv/dt Filter Applications,” Presented at the IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) 2018.
