This online engineering specialization is ideal for learners and engineers seeking to advance their skills in the analysis, modeling, and design of high-performance control loops around switched-mode dc-dc, ac-dc, and dc-ac power converters.

By completing this specialization, you will be able to:

  • Master techniques of design-oriented analysis for switched-mode power converters
  • Verify the design of closed-loop regulated power converters using switching and averaged circuit simulations
  • Design high-performance peak current-mode control and average current-mode control loops
  • Design input filters for switched-mode power converters


  • Averaged-Switch Modeling & Simulation
  • Techniques of Design-Oriented Analysis
  • Input Filter Design
  • Current-Mode Control
  • Modeling & Control of Single-Phase Rectifiers & Inverters

This specialization can be taken for academic credit as part of CU Boulder’s Master of Science in Electrical (MS-EE) degree offered on the Coursera platform. The MS-EE is an affordable, global master's program powered by you. Learn more about the MS-EE program.
