ECE69500 - Power Electronic Converters and Systems

Fall 2016

Days/Time: TTh / TBA
Credit Hours: 3

Learning Objective:
The objective of this course is to educate students in the detailed modeling, average-value modeling, and control design of power electronics converters and systems of converters.

Description:
Part 1 of the course addresses components and modeling techniques and considers three power converters - a dc/dc converter, an ac/dc power supply, and a dc/ac inverter. Detailed and average-value modeling concepts are presented, and detailed component controls are developed. Part 2 of the course focuses on systems of power electronic converters. In particular, the concept of negative impedance instability is explored using both linear and non-linear analysis methods.

Topics Covered:
Components and Modeling Techniques; Component Design; Stability and System Control of Power Electronics Based Systems.

Prerequisites:
Basic knowledge of synchronous machines, three-phase inverters, reference frame theory, frequency domain and state-space linear control theory. Purdue ECE610 Energy Conversion and ECE602 Lumped System Theory or equivalent.

Applied/Theory: 50/50
