Power electronics is a key enabling technology in essentially all electronic systems, ranging from wireless communication devices, portable and desktop computers, to telecommunication infrastructure systems and industrial systems. It is increasingly important in the grid interface of renewable energy sources and in efficient electrical loads.

This certificate program provides a knowledge of fundamentals of the power electronics field, including:

  • Basic operation of pulse-width modulated converter circuits
  • Modeling and design of converter circuit feedback systems
  • Current-mode control
  • Simulation
  • Input EMI filter design
  • Modeling and design of high-frequency power magnetic elements
  • Low-harmonic rectifiers
  • Resonant converters
  • Soft switching
  • Design-oriented analysis is also emphasized
