This course is designed to provide students a solid foundation on the fundamentals and principles of power electronics. Analytical modeling and control techniques will be introduced in addition to practical design considerations for switching regulators. Topics include steady state analysis, large and small signal modeling, control loop design, input filter and magnetic design along with switch realization and efficiency evaluation. Advanced topics such as soft switching and active power factor correction will also be introduced. Each topic will include an in-class modeling and simulation component, utilizing MATLAB/Simulink, to reinforce concepts and provide the student with a practical design tool for evaluating compliance to typical performance requirements.
