Aim of course

Supplement to the topics of the basic course "Power Electronics" considering DC power supplies, especially for computer and telecom systems, for industrial applications as well as for medical applications. Furthermore, advanced studies in the area of power electronic circuits, especially for converters and inverters including the operating behaviour of turn-off power semiconductor devices as well as their application in power electronic circuits. Also, the area of electromagnetic influence (EMI) and power quality issues are treated.

Subject of course

Overview concerning power supply structures, especially switch-mode power supplies, details for buck-, boost- and buck-boost and higher order topologies, forward and fly-back circuits, resonant power supplies, control circuits, components and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). Treatment of the structures and their operation, analysis of the transfer functions and of the control characteristic as bases for current and voltage control dimensioning. Further topics: See "Aim of Course".

Previous knowledge

This lecture is part of an advanced lecture block (formed by lectures 370.030, 370.031, 370.032). Basic knowledge of power electronic systems (gained, e.g., by passing lecture 372.033 or a similar basic-oriented power electronics course) hence are required.
