IEEE RUET WIE Student Branch Affinity Group in Association with IEEE RUET Student Branch is going to organize a short course on “POWER ELECTRONICS CONVERTERS “. It will be a 7 day course starting from July 11, 2019.
Power electronics is the application of solid-state electronics to control and convert one form of electrical power to another form such as converting between AC and DC or changing the magnitude and phase of voltage and current or frequency or combination of these. Power electronics converters are widely used in myriad power conversion applications from fraction of volt and power to tens of thousands of volts and power levels. Sometimes it involves multistage power conversion with two or more converters connected in series/parallel or in cascade fashion. Power electronic converters play a major role in renewable energy system. Power converters could be as simple as a transformer to change the voltage of AC power, but also includes far more complex system. The power converter systems can be classified according to the type of the input and output power.
The course will include
1. Power Electronics basics, Types of power converters, Modern Power Devices
2. Thyristors versus IGBT, Firing pulse generation, Isolation techniques, Snuber Circuit, Switching losses
3. ac-DC converters
4. ac-ac converters
5. DC-DC converters
6. Dc-ac converters
7. Special applications and further research topics.
