Syllabus
Prerequisites: Topics in the courses of Electrotechnics (electrical circuits and magnetic components), Analog and Digital Electronics, and Automatic Control.
Target skills and knowledge: Provide the student with theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of power electronics. Provide knowledge concerning power semiconductor devices, high frequency magnetic devices, the main power electronic circuits and related control techniques. Develop the skills to analyze power electronics converters, to choose the main components and to estimate losses and efficiency. Develop the skills of regulating electronic power systems by means of analog and digital controllers. Develop the knowledge of designing analog electronics for the implementation of analog controllers and signal conditioning from sensors used in power electronics.
Examination methods: The exam is carried out with an oral exam, both for the first and for the second module. During the tests, the individual laboratory reports will be evaluated and analyzed.
Assessment criteria: The evaluation criteria can be summarized as:
- completeness of the theoretical knowledge acquired on the course topics;
- level of independent thinking acquired in the analysis of power electronics circuits
- demonstrated ability to apply theoretical knowledge for the development of dynamic models of converters and related control structures
- ability to understand power electronics circuits through simulation tools
- rigorous methodology on presenting the topics discusses during the oral examination
