Research Area

Analysis, Design and Control of Power Electronic Converters , Electric Drives, and Renewable Energies

Research Outline

Design, Optimization and Control of power converters.


Pouya obtained the BSc. Degree in Electrical Engineering from University of Tabriz (2014) and MSc. Degree from Shahid Beheshti University (2017). During his studies he focused on building high quality experimental setups in power electronics. While completing his degrees he worked on designing a new a novel converter to simultaneously interface two renewable energies (PV and Fuelcell) and a battery to a bipolar DC Microgrid considering all control parameters while an optimized control scheme has been designed to achieve the converter’s proper operation. After graduation he worked on DC Motor Drives and high step up DC-DC Converters. He received the best presenter of the session Award at the IEEE-PEDSTC conference in 2019. He joined UCL in February 2020 to pursue a PhD within the electric propulsion group.
