PhD position - AC/DC converter based on piezoelectric material and adiabatic power transfer

SL-DRT-18-0666

RESEARCH FIELD

Electromagnetism - Electrical engineering

ABSTRACT

The aim of this thesis is to design high-efficiency power converters based on resonating piezoelectric transducers. A large part of the work is to develop the electrical cycle able to energetically maintain the piezoelectric resonator in resonance and ensure zero-voltage switching, for electrical energy transfer from the source to the piezoelectric resonator or from the piezoelectric resonator to the output, in order to minimize the losses. An electronic power management circuit will be designed to enable this ideal energetic cycle. This electronic circuit will include several regulation loops to ensure the system stability and regulate the electrical output power. Finally, a study of the piezoelectric transducer size reduction will be done in view of a MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical System) integration.
