After finishing her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at Texas A&M University as well as working as an Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago for 2 years, Mahshid Amirabadi is currently working as an Assistant Professor at Northeastern University. Having over 35 publications and several patents under her belt, she is a renowned expert in her field and an accomplished scholar. Her research is focused on the design, modeling, and control of power converters, power electronics for renewable energy systems, microgrids, variable speed drives, and wireless power transfer.
Throughout her education and career, she has been using PSIM.
“I have been using PSIM for more than a decade. In my research group, we have used PSIM for evaluating the performance of power electronics converters. We have proposed several novel power converter configurations, which we could develop and evaluate with the help of PSIM.
One of the significantly helpful features of this software is the ability to adjust the level of accuracy of components. We typically use ideal component models at the first stage when we are verifying a new topology, then we increase the accuracy of component models, and at the last stage, which is right before experimental evaluation of a converter, we use the most accurate models to take into consideration all non-idealities.
The technical support of the company has always been very helpful.”
We are looking forward to many more years of service that we can bring to Mashid and her research group.
