Modern Power Electronics

  • Power electronic converters can be found wherever there is a need to modify a form of electrical energy. Unprecedented developments have occurred in modern systems based on monolithic VLSI components with multimillion transistors of submicron dimensions. These two reasons have affected the power electronic interface of products and systems where power quality electronic play a key role in control, protection, supervision and motor drives etc.

    The course is aimed at discussing the subject such as the modern power semiconductors; switch mode power supplies; UPS; power conditioning and protection; energy saving lamps and electronic ballasts; modern batteries and management techniques ; power factor correction and harmonic control etc.
