After completing this course, you will:
● Understand what a switched-mode converter is and its basic operating principles
● Be able to solve for the steady-state voltages and currents of step-down, step-up, inverting, and other power converters
● Know how to derive an averaged equivalent circuit model and solve for the converter efficiency
A basic understanding of electrical circuit analysis is an assumed prerequisite for this course.
Introduction to Power Electronics is course 1 of 6 in the Power Electronics Specialization.
Design modern switched-mode power converters; create high-performance control loops around power converters; understand efficiency, power density and cost trade-offs By 2030, 80% of all electrical energy will be processed by power electronics. Professional advantages continue to grow for technical engineers who understand the fundamental principles and technical requirements of modern power conversion systems. This specialization covers design-oriented analysis, modeling and simulation techniques leading to practical engineering of high-performance power electronics systems.
