Research Associate/Research Engineer National University of Singapore, Faculty of Science (FoS) Singapore

Research Associate/Research Engineer - 0070X


Scope: The focus of the project is to design and develop conventional Dual active bridge (DAB) based bidirectional isolated AC-DC converter and Matrix based bidirectional AC-DC converter system. The research focus is on modulation strategy for the AC-DC converter to achieve high power density, power conversion efficiency and reliability. During this project, a hardware prototype of the AC-DC converter will be built and tested to validate the performances of both the systems. Moreover, digital control with SVM based modulation scheme will be implemented to achieve high input power quality and power conversion efficiency. Finally, the hardware prototype will be tested with utility grid and battery storage and the dynamics of the converter under transients and unbalanced conditions will be analysed.


Interested candidate should possess a Bachelor’s/Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering with strong background in Power Electronics. We seek motivated candidates who are able to show a proven excellent record in research, and are ready to thrive in a dynamic, multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary team. The successful candidate should demonstrate a track record of implementing hardware design in field of power electronic systems and their control. The candidate is also expected to be self-motivated, able to lead other research engineers and graduate students, and able to propose research ideas.

In particular, we seek a person with the following skills:


  • Relevant experience in the hardware design of power electronic converters.
  • Knowledge of Printed Circuit Board (PCB) design, high frequency magnetics design are required.
  • Practical experience in design, fabrication, real-time control and testing of power electronic converters using DSP/dSPACE/Microcontroller/FPGA.
  • Fluent verbal and written communications in English.
  • Strong analytical and conceptual abilities.
