Implementation of a hybrid AC-AC direct power converter with unity voltage transfer (2008)
Journal Article
Wijekoon, T., Klumpner, C., Zanchetta, P., & Wheeler, P. (2008). Implementation of a hybrid AC-AC direct power converter with unity voltage transfer. IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics, 23(4), doi:10.1109/TPEL.2008.924601

This paper presents a novel hybrid direct power converter (HDPC) which overcomes the two main disadvantages of matrix converters: limited voltage transfer ratio and low immunity to grid disturbance. The proposed converter is formed by integrating a r... Read More about Implementation of a hybrid AC-AC direct power converter with unity voltage transfer.

Hybrid matrix converter topologies: an exploration of benefits (2008)
Conference Proceeding
Klumpner, C., & Pitic, C. (2008). Hybrid matrix converter topologies: an exploration of benefits. In 2008 IEEE Power Electronics Specialists Conferencedoi:10.1109/PESC.2008.4591887

Matrix converters are direct AC/AC power converters that can operate with sinusoidal output/input voltage/currents without the need of passive components to store energy, which means that they are grid friendly and have a great weight/volume reductio...

Structural and electrical characterization of AuPtAlTi ohmic contacts to AlGaN/GaN with varying annealing temperature and Al content (2008)
Journal Article
Fay, M. W., Han, Y., Brown, P. D., Harrison, I., Hilton, K., Munday, A., …Martin, T. (2008). Structural and electrical characterization of AuPtAlTi ohmic contacts to AlGaN/GaN with varying annealing temperature and Al content. Journal of Applied Physics, 103(7), doi:10.1063/1.2890978

The effect of varying annealing temperature and Al layer thickness on the structural and electrical characteristics of AuPtAlTi/AlGaN/GaN ohmic contact structures has been systematically investigated. The relationship between annealing temperature, A...
