The objective of this course material is to give Electrical Engineering students early in their academic career an understanding of the fundamentals of power electronics, and of the critical role that power electronics plays in all electronic and electromechanical systems. Power Electronics is becoming increasingly important in many disciplines:
But despite its important role, power is often not the first thing that comes to mind when considering these applications. The course material and associated lab exercises aim to give students a theoretical (but practical ) understanding of DC-DC converters (Buck, Boost, Buck-Boost) Flyback converters, Sepic converters, AC-DC conversion, transformers, switched-capacitor circuits, and more.
