Researcher

ISSIA CNR – Palermo

 

SHORT BIO

Antonella Ragusa received the degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Palermo in 2001; in 2006, at the same University, she received the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering developing her research activity within the group of Converters, Electrical Machines and Drives at the Department of Electrical Engineering of the University of Palermo, within the Institute on Intelligent System for Automation (ISSIA) of the National Research Council (CNR) and within the ELASIS-FIAT (Naples). From November 2006 to December 2007, she worked as consultant at FIAT GROUP AUTOMOBILES (Turin) within the group of Engineering & Design on topics related to Virtual Analysis of Body Electronics. Since January 2008, she has been a permanent researcher at the CNR-ISSIA. She serves as reviewer for international journals and conferences. Her main research activity is focused on electromagnetic compatibility, electrical drive systems and renewable energy.
