This course presents applications and practical considerations for the design of power electronic circuits, building on the fundamentals and principles covered in 525.725 Power Electronics. We will go through the step-by-step design and modeling of a synchronous buck converter including the power stage, small-signal model, controller, full simulation, component selection, and magnetics design. Additional topics covered include circuit board layout, peak current mode control, and practical methods of addressing common challenges in power supply circuits. Students gain hands-on experience through lab-based assignments and a design project. All required test equipment will be provided. Students are expected to have basic soldering skills and experience with electronic test equipment (DC power supplies, oscilloscopes, multimeters).
