Professor Keith Corzine received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Missouri – Rolla in 1997.  From 1997 to 2004, he was at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee as an Assistant Professor and Associate Professor.  From 2004 to 2012, he was at the Missouri University of Science & Technology where he held the ranks of Associate Professor and Professor.  Professor Corzine is a Senior Member of IEEE.  He has been involved with IEEE as the St. Louis Section Chair in 2010, on the Region 5 Audit Committee from 2007 to 2010, and has been involved in publicity and finance for IEEE conferences.  Professor Corzine has also served as a consultant for a number of industries.

Professor Corzine has 15 years of experience in the areas of electric machinery, power conversion, and power systems.  His initial contributions were on the topics of analysis and control of brushless dc drives, induction motor drives, and synchronous machines.  He then worked in the area of multilevel power converters.  In addition to new developments with the diode-clamped, series H-bridge, and flying capacitor converters, Professor Corzine introduced new cascaded topologies as well as developed novel control methods and holds two U.S. patents in these areas.  He also contributed to several application areas of multilevel converters including hybrid vehicles and active filters.  Professor Corzine’s recent endeavors have been in the area of power systems.  He holds a U.S. patent on a method of measuring source and load impedances in the q-d domain for stability applications.  He has worked with power converter control for real-time simulation of plug-in vehicles in a utility grid.  Recently, Professor Corzine introduced a circuit breaker for dc micro grids.  The breaker uses a unique resonant circuit to automatically disconnect in response to faults.

Professor Corzine holds 3 U.S. patents, has published over 40 academic journal papers, over 70 conference papers, and 3 book chapters. He has graduated 6 Ph.D. students and 12 M.S. students. He has received a number of awards from institutions and IEEE including faculty and research excellence awards from Missouri University of Science & Technology and the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee.
