Prof. Ing. Alberto Reatti Resume
Reatti scientific activity started after his M.S. degree (October 13, 1988)
and was oriented to quality target rather than quantity ones, developing
researches involving industries.
The first field investigated was resonant switching converters, a few papers were written. These papers, even if written in Italian have been requested by several researcher of foreign Universities and research laboratories.
These research activities show that “quasi resonant” power converter, largely investigated at that time, are actually “resonant” converter with a low quality factor and therefore the research activity on “resonant” converter is increased as shown by papers
A1 refereed on international book and requested by researchers of foreign Universities
B8 refereed on international book;
B11 refereed on international book.
Also optimization of PWM converters which are widely utilized in industrial production is among the interested of A.R. research, see paper 15 which as been refereed in international journal papers by Boston MIT researchers and requested by researchers of foreign Universities.
The activity was developed along with foreign researcher and allows A.R. to by work as “Research Associate” at Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio, USA. The work done ove there completely satisfied the local referrer Prof. M. K. Kazimieczuk and cooperation with him last several years, on topics such as high frequency power inductor and transformers. Several journal and conference papers are written (Journal Papers) (Conference Papers), as examples, see:
A4 refereed in international journals;
A8 refereed in internationa tutorials at Boston MIT;
B15 refereed in international journals;
B25 refereed in international journals;
B26 refereed in international journals.
An aplication of resonant converter is represented by HID lamp Ballasts , see
A6 refereed in international journals;
B29 presented at the annual meeting of Virginia Power Electronic Center.
At this center A.R. was working at time an Italian student which A.R. was able to find a Grant by Magnetek Co.
PWM converter has been studied also by using numerical and symbolic analysis techniques developed for switching converter, see paper
A10 referred as on of the fundamental papers for the “Circuit Theory” at the Maryland University and selected among Western European “significant papers” for PWM circuit control theory.
The reasearch activity is testified by more than 50 journal and conference papers (among them 7 are single author papers and 15 have been refereed). Several papers which are not single author papers have been written in cooperation with foreigner researchers.
