About us

LARI focuses mainly on the design and control of new topologies of switched AC and DC power converters for the integration of renewable energies. The converter regulation includes both digital and analog controls using linear and non-linear techniques. In addition, the development of new mathematical models to be used in the emulation of renewable energy sources to study the interaction with power converters is another area of research of LARI. Finally, for LARI, national and international research cooperation is a strategic motor of development that enhances all our activities.


Contribute to the technological development and positioning of renewable energies in Chile through basic research, innovation, technology transfer and training of highly qualified professionals in key social impact areas.


To be a research center of excellence and international reference for applications and developments in smart grids with highly qualified staff and research lines that benefit the technological progress of Chile.
