Ph.D. Student, Haoyu Wang

Haoyu Wang Research topic: Ultra-Compact and Highly Efficient Wide Band Gap based Power Electronics Interfaces for Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicles

Haoyu Wang received a B.S.E. degree in electrical engineering with the highest honor at Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China in 2009. He joined the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department at the University of Maryland, College Park, to purse his Ph.D. He was an intern with GeneSiC Semiconductor, Inc. in summer 2012.
His research includes analog and radio frequency integrated circuits design, power electronics interface design for human motion energy harvesting, gate driver and testing circuitries design for SiC power devices, as well as plug-in hybrid electrical vehicles. In his time as a Ph.D. student, he has designed and tested a voltage to current converter in MOSIS to feed current to analog memory systems as well as designed a 2.4GHz radio frequency (RF) frequency modulation receiver for RF communication.
Since he joined the Power Electronics, Energy Harvesting and Renewable Energies Laboratory (PEHREL) in Dec. 2011, Haoyu has been working on designing a novel boost, buck-boost AC-DC converter for low voltage human motion energy harvesting applications. Currently he is working on designing a novel compact and high efficiency 7.6 kW SiC charger for plug-in Electric Vehicles.
