College of Engineering
Dan Ludois' research focuses on a multi-faceted power electronics, fluid mechanics and electrodynamics approach to develop capacitive (rather than inductive) electrical and electromechanical power conversion devices. Applications include wind turbines, electric and hybrid electric vehicles, aerospace, energy storage and infrastructure. His research team uses extensive analytical- and computer-based analysis to design and construct laboratory prototypes for model validation.
