Converter Circuits

Power Electronics,

This course can also be taken for academic credit as ECEA 5701, part of CU Boulder’s Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree. This course introduces more advanced concepts of switched-mode converter circuits. Realization of the power semiconductors in inverters or in converters having bidirectional power flow is explained. Power diodes, power MOSFETs, and IGBTs are explained, along with the origins of their switching times. Equivalent circuit models are refined to include the effects of switching loss. The discontinuous conduction mode is described and analyzed. A number of well-known converter circuit topologies are explored, including those with transformer isolation. The homework assignments include a boost converter and an H-bridge inverter used in a grid-interfaced solar inverter system, as well as transformer-isolated forward and flyback converters. After completing this course, you will: ● Understand how to implement the power semiconductor devices in a switching converter ● Understand the origins of the discontinuous conduction mode and be able to solve converters operating in DCM ● Understand the basic dc-dc converter and dc-ac inverter circuits ● Understand how to implement transformer isolation in a dc-dc converter, including the popular forward and flyback converter topologies Completion of the first course Introduction to Power Electronics is the assumed prerequisite for this course.

What people are saying

power electronics

This course very useful,because I have learned the topology of the electronic circuit ,and I needed to reviewe the knowledge I learned when I solved the quizzes,which Nice course, to build your concepts related to Power Electronics Honestly, the assignments are unnecessarily cumbersome.

As an EE student in university, I have learned some contents of power electronics in my own Syllabus, and found this course a good review as well as a source of insights.

Very good advance power electronics course I wish there would be more simulation assignment though اكثر متعتي في هذا الدرس كانت عندما اكملت كل الامتحانات وحصلت على فرصة ان اكون مرشد.

But for a real knowledge, I think one must do the other courses of the power electronics specialization, that is to say course 3, 4, 5 and 6.

I highly recommended to anyone who wants to start with power electronics.

This course has helped me in getting a good insight into Power Electronics.

very good

Great course Very good course.

Very good, but some topics may need to be explained further, like the realization of the switches Excellent course!!

best courses

Great for applied technology on low power DC/DC converters One of the best courses available online to learn about power electronics.

This is one of the best courses available on Coursera, it's very professionally presented and covers the topic from an academic point of view.This is not a cook-course that gives you circuits that are ready to implement, instead this course focus more on the design (from scratch) and the trade-offs involved.Also the details provided here is very deep in the topic, if you are expecting a nice easy intro course this one might not be the good choice.ISA I'm going definitely to continue the specialization and I'm looking forward to the knowledge and concepts I'll learn :) Great course!

Excellent Very Good It has been one of my favorites MOOCs, I would say a top 3 of the best courses i have taken.
