Research and Development Engineer at Section for Organic Energy Materials, DTU Energy

AREAS OF EXPERTISE

  • High voltage and high power circuits
  • Power converters for solar cell systems

 

BIOGRAPHY

Rafael García-Valverde’s work focuses on developing power electronics which can handle the down conversion of the very high voltage generated by the polymer solar cells (> 5,000 V) to below 1000 V in a safe and efficient way. His work will pave the way for easy access to the electricity grid via commercially available PV inverters, because highly specialized, high-voltage components with correspondingly high cost will not be required.
