Transformerless and 10kV-class Medium Voltage (MV) Drives

Transformerless and 10kV-class Medium Voltage (MV) Drives

This is a past event

Professor Bin Wu of Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada will give a two part seminar.

This seminar is composed of two parts: Part 1 – Power Electronics Research at Ryerson University, where the research facilities and industrial projects currently carried out at the University will be presented, and Part 2 – Transformerless and 10kV-class Medium Voltage (MV) Drives.  In this part, an overview of the MV drives and their industrial applications will be presented, and various practical converter topologies, including multilevel voltage source converters and PWM current source converters for the MV drives, will be reviewed. The latest technology for the transformerless MV drives will be elaborated, and research and development of the 10kV-class drives will be presented.


Bin Wu received the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Toronto in 1993. He joined Ryerson University in 1994, where he is currently a Professor and NSERC/Rockwell-Automation Industrial Research Chair. Dr. Wu has published more than 270 technical papers, authored/coauthored two Wiley-IEEE Press books, and holds more than 20 issued/pending patents in the area of power conversion, electric drives and renewable energy systems. Dr. Wu received the Gold Medal of the Governor General of Canada, the Premier’s Research Excellence Award, Ryerson Distinguished Scholar Award, and the NSERC Synergy Award for Innovation. He is a fellow of IEEE, Engineering Institute of Canada (EIC), and Canadian Academy of Engineering (CAE). Dr. Wu is an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics and IEEE Canadian Review.
