Best Poster Award at the European PhD School

The European PhD School on Power Electronics, Electrical Machines, Energy Control and Power Systems was founded in 1999 with the goal of providing Ph.D. students the opportunity to broaden their knowledge in these research areas.

The Best Poster Award is sponsored by ANAE and ECPE. A special commission examines posters presented during the Monday afternoon poster sessions and selects the best posters, on the basis of the presentation and research contents. The Award of € 500,00 is assigned during the Monday evening banquet by represantatives of ECPE and ANAE.


Award Ceremony

The winner of the Best Poster Award 2017 sponsored by ANAE and ECPE is Luis G. Alves Rodrigues, Brazil.

Luis G. Alves Rodrigues was born in Guaratingueta, Brazil, in 1991. He received the B. Sc. degree in electrical engineering from both the São Paulo State University (UNESP), Ilha Solteira, Brazil, and the Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Electronique, d’Electrotechnique, d’Informatique, d’Hydraulique et de Telecommunications (ENSEEIHT), Toulouse, France, in 2014 and 2015, respectively. He is currently working towards his Ph.D at the National Institute of Solar Energy (CEA/INES) and the Grenoble Electrical Engineering Laboratory (G2Elab) in France. His research interests include power electronics for renewable energy sources, DC-AC converters and wide band-gap devices.

The title of his Paper is 'Design and characterization of high-power (S>250kVA) SiC-based current source inverter for photovoltaic applications'.
