​Hungarian success in the World Championship of Scientific Competitions

May 23, 2024

Zelveszter Laskay, a student at Mihaly Fazekas High School in Debrecen, took fourth place out of thousands of participants at the International Science and Engineering Fair held in Los Angeles – the Hungarian Innovation Association informed MTI on May 23.

They said that the young Hungarian high school student qualified for the international competition based on his results in the National Science and Innovation Olympiad (OTIO) organized by the association.

Szilveszter Laskai represented Hungary in the competition with his application titled “Design of a traction inverter using semiconductor SiC”.

According to the association's information, the innovative solution can ideally be used as a general-purpose frequency converter, as its power density is 60 percent higher than a commercially available frequency converter with similar performance.

According to the evaluation of the jury composed of famous experts, the developed SiC inverter as an innovative device for increasing energy efficiency can provide a suitable and sufficient answer to the challenges related to changes in the economic and environmental environment.

About 2,000 students representing 49 countries and 70 countries around the world competed in the world championship, which concluded on Tuesday. One of the members of the Hungarian team was Ádám Vajda, a student at ELTE Radnót Miklós High School, who was a finalist in this year's 33rd OTIO.

The Hungarian delegation was headed by Zofia Pazak, Deputy Director General of the Hungarian Innovation Association.
