Jason Poon
 
PhD student and TA
UC Berkeley, USA

Background

Jason Poon is a Ph.D. Candidate and TA at UC Berkeley, where he is a member of the Power Electronics Group advised by Seth Sanders. He received his B.S. degree from Olin College of Engineering in 2012 and his M.S. degree from UC Berkeley in 2015.

He also held research positions at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, ABB Corporate Research in Baden-Dättwil, Switzerland, and the National University of Singapore.

Research interests

Mr. Poon's primary research fields are power electronics and energy systems, where his ultimate goal is to create distributed power electronics systems that are inherently self-healing, predictive, and responsive. More specifically, he works on applications for renewable energy integration, electric vehicles, data center power delivery, distributed energy resource (DER) coordination and control, motor drives and generators, and electrification for emerging regions.  

Projects

Currently, Mr Poon's projects include fault diagnosis for switching power converters and DC microgrids for electrification of emerging regions. From 2009 to 2013 he also worked on hardware in the loop for power electronics systems. 

In his resarch, he uses hardware in the loop to quickly test and validate various ideas on an actual controller. Fundamentally, he sees hardware in the loop technology as an indispensible tool and a bridge between offline simulation and full experimental implementation.
