Fang Z. Peng

University Distinguished Professor


His principle scholarly interests include power electronics, motor drives, hybrid electric vehicles, and renewable energy interface systems. Peng is also the director of the MSU Power Electronics and Motor Drives Laboratory. Electronics focuses on advanced R&D on power conversion technology and motor control for renewable energy, utility and transportation applications. The lab consists of a low-voltage (three-phase 480 V) lab and a medium-voltage (three-phase 6,000 V) lab for conducting research, development, and testing of power converters/inverters and motor drives from a fraction of kVA to ten MVA
