Syllabus
Prerequisites:
Target skills and knowledge:: The main goal of this course is to make the students familiar with the analysis of switching converters, by providing them with the theoretical and pratical tools necessary to design and realize high frequency conversion systems, with reference to dc-dc converters.
Course unit contents:
Planned learning activities: - General considerations about Power Electronics
- Static and dynamic characterization of electronic devices employed as switches
diodes
MOSFET
IGBT
- Basic dc-dc converter topologies: steady-state analysis (Continuous Conduction Mode - CCM and Discontinuous Conduction Mode - DCM)
buck
boost
buck-boost
- Isolated converters:
forward (reset R-C-D, active clamp and auxiliary winding)
push-pull
half-bridge
full-bridge
flyback
- Average models in CCM and DCM and their linearization around a given operating point
- Direct duty-cycle control: design of PI and PID controllers
- Double loop current controls
Peak current mode control: modulator modeling and design of the external voltage loop
Average current mode control: design of current and voltage control loops
- Analysis of high-frequency transformers
Skin and proximity effects
Approximated derivation of the low-frequency transformer leakage inductance
Dowell curves and high-frequency winding losses
- Snubber for switch overvoltage limitation at turn off (clamping circuits)
- Input filters: design criteria
- Laboratory: static and dynamic measurements of a boost dc-dc converter
- Simulations: description of MATLAB Simulink software and its use in the simulations of switching power supplies

Additional notes about suggested reading:: Lecture notes: Elettronica per l'Energia
Teaching methods: The course is based essentially on lectures with the use of a standard blackboard. For specific arguments, computer presentations (slides) will be used.
Assessment criteria: The final examination consists in a couple of written questions followed by an oral examination. To access the final examination it is necessary to present the laboratory activity in the form of filled sheets.
