Modern power electronics devices and circuits are now in widespread use, across an ever-increasing number of power conversion and power control applications. The purpose of this course is to give a detailed introduction to the key aspects of power electronic circuits, components and design.
Techniques for analysing and designing switch-mode power supplies, DC-DC converters, power rectifiers, static power inverters and universal power supplies are examined, along with electric machines, motors and transformers, and their associated power electronics drive requirements. The course also gives an overview of the electrical power system and power systems analysis, in the context of power electronics applications and their interaction with the power network.
This course will provide a strong foundation in power electronics for systems engineers and project engineers, including a strong laboratory component. This course should give students a very solid overview of topics that would often be covered in considerable detail in multiple power electrical engineering courses, with the goal of giving the students a good level of coverage of the fundamentals across the power systems and power electronics fields.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:Objectives:Understand and demonstrate use of concepts in:
Assignments (6%); Laboratories (29%); Mid-semester quiz (10%); Project (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.
