Practical implementation, system integration and coordinated control of power electronic converters with balancing functionality to ensure the reliability, safety and efficiency of direct current networks. KU Leuven
New types of unidirectional and bidirectional wide-bandgap semiconductors such as GaN allow toswitch with significantly lower losses and higher switching speeds, yielding a volume reduction and
efficiency and enhancement. The goal of this PhD is to investigate the adaptation of existing circuit
topologies and introduce novel circuit types based on these components. The envisaged applications are
low-voltage high-performance ...
This project will develop a fully integrated nonparametric methodology for analyzing the efficiency of DMUs (i.e. Decision Making Units) that produce multiple outputs. A specific feature of our methodology is that it can deal with jointly used inputs (i.e. inputs that simultaneously benefit several outputs), which create interdependencies between the outputspecific production processes. By starting from a theoretical production model for cost ...
Energy efficiency strategies in telecommunication access networks Ghent University
There is an increasing awareness and concern about human consumption of fossil fuels, and how its consequences are affecting the climate. Global warming has been proven beyond doubt, and there is a broad consensus among climate scientists that greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from human activity are causing it. A significant share of these emissions originates in the burning of fossil fuels to generate electricity. Global electricity ...

different strategic sectors as renewable energy, electric mobility and digital technologies.
Unfortunately, PGMs are costly and Europe depends on their importation from other continents, which is nowadays a high risk for the
development of strategic applications in key industrial sectors. For these reasons ...
