As part of the IEEE Power Electronics Distinguished Lecture Series, Professor Balog, REAPERlab Director, gave a talk to the Seoul Power Electronics Society chapter entitled “Opportunities and Challenges in the Balance of Systems for Photovoltaic Energy.” The talk examined the costs and performance issues of the balance-of-systems in photovoltaic systems to explore other technologies and considerations that warrant attention if photovoltaic systems are truly to become ubiquitous.

Dr. Balog wishes to thank Professor Rae-Young (Ryan) Kim, IEEE Senior Member, PELS Seoul chapter Secretary, Chair of Electrical and Biomedical Department, and Director of Energy Electronics Control System Lab (EECS Lab) at the Hanyang University Power Electronics Center (HYPEC) for organizing and hosting the lecture.
