My first love was electric motors. But when I attended university, most research was in power electronics. Once in the field, I designed machines and inverters, and I have automated production lines. This is where I really learned to think on my feet. When a robot went down, it had to be up by dawn no matter what. Tell me your problem and I will make it work.
Designing all aspects of power electronics from concept to prototypes on the bench. Creating new inverters on a system level with customers at the project definition stage. Hardware and software design and prove-out.

Dr. Michael A. Brubaker
Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Advanced Conversion
I am pleased to recommend Doug Maly as a technical expert in the field of power conversion. I have worked with Doug on some very advanced inverter designs for traction applications. He has an excellent understanding of system level design and the importance of topology working with cutting edge SiC devices. Our company provides next generation DC link capacitor solutions, and we highly value design engineers that can appreciate the value add that our products provide. In addition to his technical expertise, Doug is very pleasant to work with and he understands the challenges of developing new prototype designs. Feel free to contact me for further details.
