Dr. Bulent Sarlioglu is a Jean van Bladel Associate Professor with the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the Associate Director of the Wisconsin Electric Machines and Power Electronics Consortium. From 2000 to 2011, he was with Honeywell International Inc.'s Aerospace Division, Torrance, CA, USA, most recently as a Staff Systems Engineer.

His expertise includes electrical machines, drives, and power electronics, and he is the inventor or co-inventor of 20 U.S. patents and many international patents. He has more than 200 technical papers that are published in conference proceedings and journals. Dr. Sarlioglu was the recipient of the Honeywell's Outstanding Engineer Award in 2011, the NSF CAREER Award in 2016, and the 4th Grand Nagamori Award from Nagamori Foundation, Japan, in 2018.


In this lecture, Dr. Sarlioglu will present high efficiency, and high power density integrated motor drive concepts using wide-bandgap (WBG) power devices. Integrated motor drives have various benefits, including eliminating cable between the motor and power electronics, reducing the EMI/EMC emissions, and potential joint cooling of the motor and power electronics. Most recent work in voltage-source inverters (VSI) and the re-emergence of current-source inverters (CSIs) will be presented.  The lecture will include practical challenges associated with designing WBG-based inverters and conclude with a discussion of current and future applications of WBG-based motor drives.
