Research output: Patent


A cascaded architecture composed of interconnected blocks that are each designed to process constant power and elimi­nate bulk energy storage are provided. Further, local controls within each block natively achieve both block and system ­level aims, making the system modular and scalable. Further methods of providing power conversion using such inter­connected clocks are also provided.
