Power electronics impacts our lives in so many ways - from new power circuits that extend battery life to voltage regulators that help manage and distribute energy more efficiently from the grid to the consumer. About this course: this course introduces the basic concepts of switched-mode converter circuits for controlling and converting electrical power with high efficiency principles of converter circuit analysis are introduced, and are developed for finding the steady state voltages, current, and efficiency of power converters.
Introduction to power electronicsintroduction to power electronics • power electronics relates to the control and flow of electrical energyelectrical energy. 1 introduction to power electronics ecen 4797/5797 robert w erickson university of colorado, boulder fall 2012 lecture 1: august 27, 2012. This is the first lecture on power electronics this lecture has been targeted to under-graduate students of electrical and electronics engineering.
Power electronics refers to the process of controlling the flow of current and voltage and converting it to a form that is suitable for user loads the most desirable power electronic system is one whose efficiency and reliability is 100. The course is an introduction to switched-mode power converters it provides a basic knowledge of circuitry for the control and conversion of electrical power with high efficiency these converters can change and regulate the voltage, current, or power dc-dc converters, ac-dc rectifiers, dc-ac inverters, and ac-ac cycloconverters are in common use. Power electronics is the process which controls the current and voltage flow and converts them to a form which is suitable for user loads power electronic system whose efficiency and reliability is 100% are the most desirable systems.
Applications include electronic power supplies, aerospace and vehicular power systems, and renewable energy systems this course is offered every fall semester it will next be offered in fall 2018 instructor: prof bob erickson it is the first of the three courses required for the professional certificate in power electronics.
