Capstone Design Project in Power Electronics

This course is a part of Power Electronics, a 6-course Specialization series from Coursera.

Learners will design a DC-DC converter that powers USB-C devices (20 V at 3 A) from a dc input voltage source such as a lithium-ion battery pack or a desktop computer power bus. Aspects of the project will include: ● Design of converter power stage and magnetics. Requires mastery of courses 1, 2, and 5. ● Simulation to verify correct steady-state operation. Requires mastery of courses 1, 2 and 4. ● Design of converter control system. Requires mastery of courses 3 and 4. ● Simulation to verify correct control system operation. Requires mastery of courses 3 and 4. ● Preparation of milestone reports documenting the design and its performance The reports will be peer graded.

design project in 5 reviews

Capstone Design Project test every aspect of skills and knowledge that have been acquired during the course of the Specialization program.

Good design projects, but very difficult at some times Very helpful,thanks all of the people in this course.

And I am also looking forward to some advance classes with the material like digital control, resonant (LLC) and soft switching, which is popular and widely used in the industry recently.About this final capstone design project, it leads me through the procedure: transfer the requirement to topology selection -> open loop design -> linear modeling and ac analysis -> final time domain analysis.

Excellent design project which provides an opportunity to utilize the knowledge acquired from previous five courses of this specialization.

The lectures of this specialization were really great, but I did not like the design project too much.

Gained a lot of hands on experience from this capstone project.

Excellent course and Capstone Project Design.

It's been a great experience to undergo the capstone project.

The capstone project makes you realize info that you learned in previous courses.

whole specialization in 3 reviews

I cannot recommend this course as well as the whole specialization enough.

Thank you CU Boulder The whole specialization series is definite a 5 star Coursera course.

In summary, the whole specialization is still a great thing to do, so thanks to the professors for sharing their knowledge with us.

flyback converter in one review

I needed to learn how to design flyback converter and how to close feedback loop with the TL431.That's majorly what led me to taking this course.

At first it felt like flyback converter was not treated in great detail but upon trying out simulation I realized I could actually design one with the TL431.

A working flyback converter that I just built based based on a simulation I had done sealed it up.
