About Me:

Yue Zheng received the B.S.E.E. degree from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, in 2012, and the M.S.E.E. degree from Northeastern University, Boston, MA, USA, in 2014, where he is currently working toward the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering. His research interests include PWM algorithm, SD card flash memory, LED driver, dc-dc converters paralleling for DC grid.

Research Interests:

Maximum Power Point Tracking algorithm, PWM algorithm in SD Card, DC/DC paralleling converters for DC grid and Solar Blanket Embedded System

Ongoing Projects:

Project: Solar Blanket Paralleling DC/DC Converters for DC Bus
Description: Modular plug-and-play photovoltaic (PV) converter system is used for charger as portable PV applications. Small subpanel of PV cells have individual dc/dc converters performing distributed maximum power point tracking or voltage regulator mode. The dc/dc submodules are connected in parallel to a DC bus.
