Our founder, Mr. Bruce Cheng, has known Dr. Fred C. Lee for many years, and they often share their experience in the field of power electronics with each other. In 1989, Dr. Lee was invited by Mr. Bruce Cheng to lead Delta's power electronics laboratories in the United States and Shanghai, which have become Delta's most important innovation technology bases. In addition, Dr. Lee has actively promoted academic exchanges and technological cooperation between the electrical engineering communities on both sides of the Taiwan Strait and internationally. In 2000, he participated in the initiation and establishment of the Delta Power Electronics Technology Development Project and the China Delta Scholars Program, which has effectively promoted innovative research and talent cultivation in power electronics at universities in China.

At the end of 2022, Delta launched a 400kW ultra-high-speed electric vehicle charging device in Detroit, U.S.A. The device was developed using a Solid State Transformer (SST) carrying the third-generation semiconductor SiC MOSFET. Virginia Tech's Center for Power Electronics Systems (CPES), led by Dr. Fred C. Lee, has been instrumental in this R&D program. Dr. Lee was also present at the unveiling to share his vision of the ultra-fast charging solution and the development and impact that the revolutionary SST technology will bring.

Dr. Lee continues to focus on the development of Delta's innovative technology. Please look forward to our next issue of the brand's bimonthly magazine, featuring an in-depth interview with Dr. Lee. He will be sharing his insights on future trends in power electronics, as well as Delta's opportunities and challenges.
