Description

Power electronics is an enabling technology which manages and converts electric power from one form and level to another. Applications of power electronics are vast such as motor drives, renewable electrical energy systems, battery chargers, energy storage systems, data and communication centres, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and HVDC. The objectives of this studio are to enable students to apply the nature of power semiconductor devices and their control and use in switch-mode power supply; evaluate the arrangement and topology of the circuits in which switch-mode devices are used; analyse the use of power electronic circuits in high-power applications such as motor drives and power systems; be aware of the electromagnetic interference problems associated with power electronic systems; use commercial software for the rigorous circuit analysis of real power electronic systems; analyse and design circuits to meet certain specifications and standards; and develop basic power electronic circuits and apply them for motor drive applications.
