This course covers advanced converter control techniques, including averaged-switch modeling and Spice simulations, modeling and design of peak current mode and average current mode controlled converters, as well as an introduction to control of single-phase ac grid tied rectifiers and inverters. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to model, design and simulate state-of-the-art power electronics systems for a wide range of dc-dc, dc-ac and ac-dc applications.
This course assumes prior completion of Introduction to Power Electronics, Converter Circuits, and Converter Control
Design modern switched-mode power converters; create high-performance control loops around power converters; understand efficiency, power density and cost trade-offs By 2030, 80% of all electrical energy will be processed by power electronics. Professional advantages continue to grow for technical engineers who understand the fundamental principles and technical requirements of modern power conversion systems. This specialization covers design-oriented analysis, modeling and simulation techniques leading to practical engineering of high-performance power electronics systems.
