About me

Yoash Levron received his Ph.D. degree in 2013 from Tel-Aviv University, and was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Colorado power electronics center during 2013-2014. Since 2014 he is an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, at the Technion. Dr. Levron’s research focuses on modern energy conversion systems, combining practical research in power electronics with theoretical research in power networks and power systems. He studies new methods for power systems analysis, including applications that are suitable to the smart-grid paradigm, such as optimal design and control of distributed generation networks, the topological design and management of energy storage devices, the dispatch of distributed generators, the use of sparse sensing and estimation, and the dynamics and control of distributed and renewable energy sources. Dr. Levron has won several awards for his research in the fields of electric energy conversion and power systems, including the second place prize paper award in the IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics (2016), the Taub fellowship for leaders in science and technology (2015), the Technion Viterbi fellowship for nurturing future faculty members (in 2013 and 2014), the award of special research contribution by the society of electrical and electronics engineers (2010), and the award for Israel Security (in 2008 and 2010). In addition, Dr. Levron is currently head of the Energy and Power Systems program at the Technion Faculty of Electrical Engineering.
