ELEC 431 Power Electronics F | 3.25

Lecture: 3
Lab: 0.25
Tutorial: 0
This course introduces the basic concepts of power electronics, which include power semiconductor devices and switching power converters. Emphasis is placed on the analysis and design of various power electronics circuits. Their industrial application, such as in telecommunications and computing, will also be discussed. More specifically, the course will cover the characteristics of switching devices, especially that of MOSFET. The course will also cover the operation of various switching converters such as phase controlled ACto- DC converters, AC voltage controllers, DC-to-DC switching converters, DC-to-AC inverters and switching power supplies. The requirements and configurations of power systems for telecommunications will be introduced. The techniques to analyze and design these power systems using available components will also be discussed. Computer simulation will be used to analyze the detailed operation of switching converters.
