This is the first course in Power Electronics. Students will learn about specific areas of application and the reasons Power Electronics is becoming popular in areas traditionally occupied by analog electronics. The course will cover applications in conversion and control of power using Power semiconductor devices, physics of their structure and operation and passive components in power circuits. Students will also learn the principles governing the operation of converters, different standard topologies, applications in power systems, motor drives, and applications in renewable energy sources.
