This course covers the important aspects of power electronic circuits, components and design. Topics include device characteristics, heat dissipation, failure modes and discrete transistor circuits. Power magnetic devices, motors and transformers, are examined, together with their associated drive circuitry and snubbers. Techniques for designing DC-power supplies, static power inverters and universal power supplies, DC-DC converters, and switch-mode power supplies are discussed. The course gives an introduction to power systems analysis and techniques.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
Upon completion of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to -
- relate basic semiconductor physics to properties of real devices, and combine circuit mathematics and characteristics of linear and non-linear devices to formulate and analyse system designs.
- apply skills in engineering estimation to analyse real-world situations, identify the important features and develop a valid approach to the solution.
- assess a power electronics design at the systems level, identify the critical areas, and be aware of typical alternative solutions.
- understand the basic principles, power and limitations of computer simulations of circuit behaviour, and apply these techniques to simple power linear and non-linear electronic circuits.
Assignments and Presentation (19%); Laboratories (26%); Mid-Semester quiz (10%); Final Exam (45%).
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
