Course specific prerequisites

EEK175-Power electronics-1

Aim

The aim of the course is to provide the students with an advanced level of knowledge in the area of power electronics. In Power electronics 1, the idealised function of power electronic converters was the main subject, while this course focuses on the design of power electronic circuits.

Content

The course focuses on the design of power electronic circuits. The course starts with the physics, properties and behaviour of the most important power electronic semiconductor switches such as diodes, thyristors, MOSFET s and IGBT s. The next item to be treated is control/driver circuits and snubber circuits for switching devices. Soft switching and resonant converters then follows. Finally examples of applications are treated, for example uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), utility interfaces, low-power power supplies for circuit boards and power conditioners.

Organisation

The course is organised in lectures, tutorials and exercise classes. Computer-based exercises dealing with power electronic components and circuits are a part of the course in order to improve the students' understanding. A practical laboratory exercise of the design of a switching element is also included in the course.
