Research Interests:

Dr. Issa Batarseh is a Professor and Director of the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Central Florida (UCF). He received the Ph.D., and M.S. in Electrical Engineering and the B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois at Chicago in 1983, '85 and '90, respectively. Dr. Batarseh was a visiting Assistant Professor at Purdue University, Calumet, from 1989 to 1990 before joining UCF in 1991. Dr. Batarseh's power electronics research focuses on the development of high frequency power converters for solar energy conversion, and to improve power density, power factor, efficiency and performance. The research includes the analysis and design of high frequency dc-to-dc resonant converter topologies; dc-ac inverters, low-voltage dc-dc converters, small signal modeling and control of PWM and resonant converters; power factor correction techniques; power electronic circuits for distributed power systems applications. His has published many journal and conference papers and a textbook entitled "Power Electronic Circuits" in 2003. Dr. Batarseh has served as a Chairman of the PE/AES/PEL Chapter of the Orlando IEEE Section. He is also a fellow of IEEE, Fellow of IEE and has served as an Associate Editor for IEEE Transaction on Aerospace and Electronic Systems and Transaction on Circuits and Systems. He served as a reviewer for the National Science Foundation and several IEEE-Transaction Journals and served on the program committees of IEEE-APEC, PESC, IECON, IAS and ISCAS. He is a registered Professional Engineer in Florida. Dr. Batarseh is a co-founder for two start-up companies: Advanced Power Electronics Corp. (APECOR) and Petra Solar.
