About the programme

The research programme on Electronic Power Grid (eGrid) was initiated in 2018, aiming at developing a world-leading research cluster on the development of power-electronic-based infrastructure for modern power systems. The opportunities brought by the emergence of wide-bandgap (SiC and GaN) power semiconductor devices are exploited. The control, stability and electromagnetic compatibility of power electronic converters in modern power grids are also focus areas.

The research programme is organised in three groups:
