Mor M. Peretz is an electrical engineer and computer scientist. He currently directs the activity of the Power Electronics Laboratory and the Center for Power Electronics and Mixed-Signal IC at the Electronic and Computer Engineering Department of Ben-Gurion University. Mor is primarily interested in power electronics, digital control, real-time control algorithms, power system on-chip, switch-mode converters, energy harvesting, solar energy, lighting systems and pulsed power.

Mor’s current research is focused on digital control of power management systems, efficient energy processing and power supply miniaturization,, power system on-chip – VLSI, integration of digital signal processing in power applications, renewable energy systems – (panel and cell level), energy harvesting applications – Especially biomech harvesting, pulsed power, nonlinear power magnetics applications magnetic actuation systems and lighting – fluorescent, LED, HID.

Mor received his PhD from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in 2010. His thesis “Time-Domain Design of Digital Controllers for Switch-Mode Converters” was written under the supervision of Prof. Shmuel Ben-Yaakov. The research focused on a developing a unified theory for the design of digital compensators for non-linier, non-constant systems and in particular for switching electronic circuits. His work explored generic dynamic features of such systems, controllers’ structures and closed loop responses and delineated the relationship between the system parameters and the time response and requirements for performance and stability.

After completing his PhD, Mor spent two years as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto, Canada. He has been published in journals such as The Journal of Science and Engineering,  International Journal of Electronics and Journal of Circuits, Systems, and Computers.
