Our Focus

Our focus is to enhance power conversion systems via new dielectric materials, geometric optimization, and high frequency power electronics.

Power Electronics

To minimize the impact of passive components within circuits.

Electric Machines

To make electric machines more sustainable and perform better.

Wireless Power Transfer

To implement capacitive coupling for wireless power tansfer.

Our Team

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.
