The research activity of PEL@DUTH group is currently focusing on grid-tied PV inverters for Low Voltage Networks, especially at high penetration levels of RES. The main objective of this effort, in addition to optimizing the inverter, is the upgraded operation and the provision of ancillary services on the part of the PV module, while maintaining a very high level of power quality. Additionally, the Group is active in the field of All-Electric Aircraft and All-Electric Ship concepts, as well as the exploitation of Wide Band Gap semiconductor power and the efficient use of energy in the industrial and household sectors (thermal energy recovery, regenerative braking, wireless power transfer, zero energy buildings, etc.). PEL @ DUTH group has a close collaboration with Greek Industries and Businesses, aiming at utilizing the latest technological trends in the field of Power Electronics and in developing new products with high added value.
