ET 344. Industrial Electronics and Control. 3 Credits.
This course covers the fundamental concepts of power electronics, characteristics of static power semiconductor devices (BJT, MOSFET, IGBT, Thyristors), AC/DC power converters: uncontrolled and controlled rectifiers (single phase and three phase), dual converter, AC/AC power converters: phase controlled converters (single phase and three phase), AC switch, cycloconverter. DC/DC converters: choppers (step down and step up), switching regulators (buck, boost, buck-boost), DC/AC converters: single phase and three phase inverters, and various power control applications.
