......Milan M. Jovanovic Power Electronics Lab (MPEL) was founded in 1989 as Delta Power Electronics Laboratory (DPEL), which operated at The Corporate Research Center of Virginia Tech. Since 1998, it has been relocated to Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. MPEL is the advanced research and development unit of Delta Electronics, in the USA, and it was named after Dr. Milan M. Jovanovic to honor his extensive contributions to power electronics technologies that helped propel Delta Electronics to become the world leader in switching power supplies.

....The primary mission of MPEL is to develop advanced power-conversion technologies aimed at assuring the continuation of Delta's technological competence, as well as the preservation of Delta's leadership position in the power conversion marketplace. The R&D activities in MPEL have been historically focused in the area of performance optimization of AC/DC and DC/DC power supplies for computer and telecom applications. By developing state-of-the art topologies, efficiency optimization methods, and power management techniques, MPEL research staff have made major contributions to improving performance of modern power converters for server, telecom, and portable data-processing equipment.

.... In recent years, MPEL has expanded its research into the development of innovative power conversion technologies, especially for automotive applications, including but not limited to AC/DC on-board chargers, DC/DC converters, DC fast charging stations, and solid-state transformers. To realize the full benefits of wide-band-gap devices in achieving significant breakthroughs in power density and efficiency, MPEL is conducting extensive research on novel resonant converters, topologies and control, soft-switching technology, advanced magnetics and packaging layout optimization for the next generation of power conversion systems.
