Discover the vital role of magnetics in transformer and inductor design. Broaden your career horizons through deeper knowledge of high frequency magnetics, and planar magnetics while staying on top of the latest challenges and trends in magnetics for power electronics engineering. William Gerard Hurley received the B.E. degree in Electrical Engineering from the National University of Ireland, Cork in 1974, the M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge MA, in 1976 and the PhD degree at the National University of Ireland, Galway in 1988. He worked for Honeywell Controls in Canada from 1977 to 1979. He worked for Ontario Hydro from 1979 to 1983. He lectured in electronic engineering at the University of Limerick, Ireland from 1983 to 1991 and is currently professor of Electrical Engineering at the National University of Ireland, Galway. He is the Director of the Power Electronics Research Centre there. He served on the faculty at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a Visiting Professor of Electrical Engineering in 1997/1998. Prof. Hurley has given invited presentations on magnetics in Mexico, Japan, Singapore, Spain, Czech Republic, Hong Kong, China, Australia and USA. Research interests include high frequency magnetics, power quality, and renewable energy systems. Prof. Hurley is a Fellow of the IEEE. He was General Chair of the Power Electronics Specialists Conference in 2000. He is the 2013 recipient of the IEEE PELS Middlebrook Award for Technical Achievement. He was appointed Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE for 2014/15. He has authored a textbook on magnetics and it was translated into Chinese.
