Since 1998, Dushan Boroyevich together with Prof. Fred Lee has led the team of over 20 professors and over 200 students from Virginia Tech, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez, and North Carolina A&T State University in the US National Science Foundation-sponsored Engineering Research Center for Power Electronics Systems (CPES).
Working in partnership with more than 80 companies, CPES has become the most renowned power electronics research and education center in the world. In addition to its alumni, the most enduring legacy of CPES is the paradigm shift in power electronics research towards higher levels of integration and modularization. Dr. Boroyevich also developed a comprehensive geometric approach to modeling and control of high-frequency switching power converters, which has become a major tool in the analysis, design, and control of emerging power-electronics-based electrical distribution systems in cars, ships, aircraft, and data communication centers.
An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Boroyevich is now the American Electric Power Professor in The Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech and co-director of CPES.
