Project:

Effects of SiC and GaN-based variable speed-motor drives and grid power quality

Descriptions:

A PhD/ MPhil scholarship equivalent to the Australian Government’s RTP (Research Training Program) is available for a SiC and GaN-based variable speed-motor drives and grid power quality project. The ARC Industrial Transformation Training Centre will fund the scholarship.

The project will involve

  • A detailed study of the effect of the high switching frequency of the WBG (Wide Band Gap) converters.
  • Establish an analytical framework for the effects
  • Using the theoretical framework, propose novel mitigation techniques. 

A student with a strong background in Electrical Motor Drives and Power Electronics is being sought. It is expected that this student will be working as a member of a team and have close cooperation with other researchers both at UNSW and UoW. 

Selection criteria:

Same as required by the UNSW for admission and scholarship (https://research.unsw.edu.au/graduate-research). If the applicant is an international student, he/she must secure the Tuition Fees Scholarship from UNSW.
