Undergraduate Course: Power Conversion 4 (ELEE10029)
|School||School of Engineering
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 10 (Year 4 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||This course will develop understanding of fundamental power electronic building blocks and modulation techniques, employed in solid-state power converters. The concept of switch mode power conversion will be developed starting with basic circuits and extended to more complex topologies and functions, including the generation of two and three phase ac waveforms. The course will introduce a range of power electronic devices and show how the properties these devices affect the design and performance of power converters. A range of case studies will be used to illustrate how power electronics may be applied to a real world applications.
