Defence of Doctoral Thesis in electronics with Muhammad Abu Bakar

The dissertation is about the design and development of a wide range power converters. It proposes an extension of the operating range of both the input side and the output side. A novel power converter has been proposed having the structure of 2x3 reconfigurable modes. By applying this structure the gain of the converter can be raised to 8. This broadens the scope of the thesis from automotive applications to renewable energy sources. A comprehensive theoretical and experimental work has also been included which further simplifies the implementation in a wide range of applications.
