Together with many elites graduated from Center for Power Electronics Systems (CPES), Virginia Tech, Dr. Ming Xu would like to introduce several fundamental courses and hand-on workshops that are critical to the skill improvement for power supply design engineers. Those enlightening education series are based on sound theories and, the most unique part, innovative research results by the team of Dr. Ming Xu at CPES. As the first engineering research center, CPES is famous for its tight cooperation with the industry. Many concepts developed by CPES research activities are widely adopted in the industry, such as the multi-phase concept, coupled inductor and so on.
The education opportunities at Powerland cover modeling and control, power semiconductor, EMI reduction, and other advanced design techniques.
Powerland provides Fundamental Class series and Workshop series. The former will give more theoretic analysis and lecturing, while the latter gives more hand-on lab experiences.
