Power Electronics I

Lecture + Exercise + Laboratory

  • Tasks and principles of power electronics, fields of application, components, power losses and cooling.
  • Line-commutated power converters: controlled and uncontrolled rectifiers and converters for single and three-phase AC systems, commutation, mains interactions.
  • Self-commutated power converters: buck and boost DC to DC converters, three-phase voltage-source inverters, pulse with modulation and control.
  • Power converter systems: cyclo converters, line-commutated converters with higher number of pulses, PWM voltage-source AC to AC converters.
