Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Aim

The aim of the course is to provide the students with a theoretical and practical knowledge of the design and function of commonly used dc/dc, ac/dc and dc/ac converters. Moreover a goal is to provide an understanding of the main components that make up a power electronic circuit, such as power semiconductors and passive components.

Content

This course deals with the behavior of power semiconductors and components of the main circuit such as capacitors and inductors in both sinusoidal and non-sinusoidal conditions. Furthermore, different types of converters (dc/dc, dc/ac & ac/dc), their operating principles, optimization and interaction with the surroundings are dealt with. The course also describes different power electronic circuits when ideal conditions are assumed as well as including the actual semiconductor characteristics.

Organisation

The course is organized with lectures, tutorials and self-exercises. In addition there is a practical laboratory task as well as computer assignments.

Literature

Ned Mohan, Tore Undeland, William Robbins, Power electronics: Converters, Applications and Design, 3rd Ed., John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2003.

Examination

Written exam. Laboratory exercises as well as P-Spice assignments must have been conducted and approved.
