Winter 2012: EECS 598-002 Power Electronic Design

Course No.: EECS 598-002
Credit Hours: 3
Instructor: Juan Manuel Rivas Davila
Prerequisites: EECS 418 or instructor permission

Course Description:
In this course, we will study the practical issues related to the practical design of power electronic converters. We will also explore the tradeoffs involved in selecting among the different circuits used to convert ac to dc, dc to ac and back to dc over a wide range of power levels suitable for different applications. In Power Electronic Design, as a multidisciplinary field, we will discuss circuits, control, magnetic design, thermal management and semiconductors and put this knowledge in a very practical context.
