The University of Warwick’s School of Engineering is home to the PEATER (Power Electronics Applications and Technology in Energy Research) Group, founded in 2005 to establish a world- class centre for research into power electronics, power semiconductor devices and applications in power systems, and power conversion. The Group carries out work in electrical energy conversion, centring on the developments in semiconductor switching devices.
The developments in MOSFET and IGBT technologies have paved the way for new applications such as hybrid vehicles, electric aircraft, electric ship propulsion, wind turbines as well as the revolution in mobile phone and computing devices.
