Course description :
Power Electronics is power conversion and control from one form of power (energy) source to a desired form by
using power semiconductor devices wherein these devices operate as switches. This course provides a basic
knowledge of power Electronics device characteristics and circuits 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 uncontrolled and phase controlled rectifier circuits, dc-ac inverters, and ac-ac cycloconverters.
Applications include electronic Switching power supplies, motors, heaters system, and renewable energy
systems. Analysis, design, and operation of power electronic circuits will be considered by simulation software .
