About the Course
The course is an introduction to switched-mode power converters. It provides a basic knowledge of circuitry for the control and conversion of electrical power with high efficiency. These converters can change and regulate the voltage, current, or power; dc-dc converters, ac-dc rectifiers, dc-ac inverters, and ac-ac cycloconverters are in common use. Applications include electronic power supplies, aerospace and vehicular power systems, and renewable energy systems.
I. Converters in Equilibrium
II. Converter Dynamics and Control
Knowledge of circuits and electronics at the level of an undergraduate major in electrical engineering is assumed.
The lectures are designed to be self-contained. The following textbook was developed for use in this class; it is recommended but not required:
The class will consist of lecture videos that are 5 to 25 minutes in length. These will contain integrated quiz questions. In addition, the course will require standalone homework each week that is machine graded.
