EPC enhances its eGaN power with David Reusch

21st May 2012
Reusch will be creating benchmark power converter designs and assisting customers in the use of the company's proprietary gallium nitride FETs for high frequency, high performance power conversion systems

Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC) has recruited David Reusch as its Director of Applications Engineering.

As a member of the EPC applications team, Reusch’s focus will be on designing lower loss and higher power density benchmark circuits that demonstrate the benefits of using transistors.

His initial focus will be on their use in higher voltage DC-DC converters and resonant, soft-switching converters. Reusch’s research and experience in these applications will be shared with customers to accelerate their designs using high performance eGaN FETs. His designs are aimed to demonstrate GaN transistors’ superior performance over MOSFETs.

David Reusch earned a doctorate in electrical engineering from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech), where he also earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees. While working on his Ph.D. he was an NSF Fellow at the Centre for Power Electronics Systems (CPES).

He is active in IEEE organisations and during the last several years has published papers at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) and the Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition (ECCE

Reusch has also had first-hand experience designing GaN transistors to meet the demands for lower loss and higher power density in power converters.
