Dr Cherif LAROUCI is professor at ESTACA engineering school. He received a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the National Polytechnic Institute of Grenoble in 2002. In the same year, he joined ESTACA as an Assistant Professor. He was the head of ESTACA’s Control and System laboratory between 2006 and 2013. He received the accreditation to supervise research (HDR degree) from Paris-Saclay University in 2013. He is Currently the Head of Energy and Embedded Systems for Transportation research department of ESTACA’LAB laboratory.
His research interests include modelling, design and optimization of power electronics converters under multi-physical constraints (volume/weight, cost, efficiency, thermal, electromagnetic compatibility, reliability, control …), optimization of mechatronic systems, embedded energy management as well as reliability and fault tolerant control of embedded electrical systems. The main considered applications are electric vehicles, electric and more electric aircraft, drones and soft mobility systems with electric assistance.
