UCF researchers are taking full advantage of the advent of digital control and new micro-controller chips. They have developed improved controller strategies that reduce the size of transformers and capacitors, leading to reduced cost and losses, in addition to improved performance and system reliability. Modular control strategies are easily modified and expanded, and are inherently robust and fault-tolerant.
