We strongly recommend students complete the CU Boulder Power Electronics Specialization as well as Courses #1 (Averaged-Switch Modeling and Simulation) and #4 (Current-Mode Control) before enrolling in this course.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
● Understand the operating principles of low-harmonic, high power factor rectifier and inverters
● Model and design current shaping and voltage control loops in power factor correction (PFC) rectifiers
● Model and design control loops in single-phase dc-to-ac inverters
● Design photovoltaic power systems tied to the single-phase ac power grid
● Use computer-aided tools and simulations to verify the design of rectifiers and inverters
Course 5 of 5 in the Modeling and Control of Power Electronics Specialization
Grid-Tied Power Electronics
Introduction to power factor and harmonics, operating principles, and modeling of low-harmonic power factor correction (PFC) rectifiers.
Control of Power Factor Correction Rectifiers
Modeling of low-harmonic rectifiers, the need for energy storage in single-phase systems, and design of current and voltage control loops.
Modeling and Control of Single-Phase Inverters
Introduction to photovoltaic (PV) systems, modeling and control of single-phase PV inverters.
