About The Course
Power electronics finds applications in Control of AC & DC drives in industries, commercial, aerospace, utility and military applications and also it plays an important role in switching power supplies, High voltage DC lines which interconnect two different AC systems. Rapid developments in recent times indicate the applications of semiconductor power devices that can efficiently switch large current at high voltages with an emphasis on low power loss.
The course curriculum focuses on Solid State Power Controllers, Power Semi Conductor Devices, Digital Measurements, AC-DC Drives and Control, Switch Mode Power Conversion, HVDC Power Transmission, Power Electronics Systems using IC’s, Advanced topics on Power Electronic Systems, Embedded System Design, Digital System Design Using VHDL. The Students also get an opportunity to work in industry collaborative laboratory set up by ABB.
