Research profile

Henk Huisman is Associate Professor in the Electromechanics and Power Electronics group of the Department of Electrical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), with a special focus on electric drives. His research and teaching concerns precision power amplifiers, motor drives, and isolated power converters, with an emphasis on interleaved and stacked (multilevel) circuit topologies, enabling high PWM (pulse-width modulation) frequency and control bandwidth while using moderate switching frequencies. As Assistant Professor, Huisman previously worked on the analysis and design of high-precision power amplifiers and resonant power converters.  

Huisman has authored or contributed to 34 conference papers, 10 articles, 6 patent publications and 2 book chapters, on multiphase series-resonant power converters, flywheel applications, and various other topics. 

Academic background

Henk Huisman received his MSc degree in 1984 and his PhD degree in 1992, both from Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) in the field of Power Electronics. He worked towards his PhD while employed at TU Delft as Assistant Professor, a position he held from 1984 until 1996. Between 1996 and 2006, Huisman was employed by CCM (Centre for Concepts in Mechatronics), now Sioux. From 2006 to 2015, he was a staff member of Philips Electronics, where he became Senior Design Engineer in Power Electronics at Philips in 2011. Huisman has worked at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) since 2010, first as Assistant Professor and since 2016 as Associate Professor. He also worked for ATB Technologies, in 2015 and 2016.
