Converter Circuits

course code : cc 001

course hours : 15 hours

PREREQUISITE : N/A

Course Description

This course introduces more advanced concepts of switched-mode converter circuits. Realization of the power semiconductors in inverters or in converters having bidirectional power flow is explained. Power diodes, power MOSFETs, and IGBTs are explained, along with the origins of their switching times. Equivalent circuit models are refined to include the effects of switching loss. The discontinuous conduction mode is described and analyzed. A number of well-known converter circuit topologies are explored, including those with transformer isolation.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the participant will be able to:

  • Understand how to implement the power semiconductor devices in a switching converter
  • Understand the origins of the discontinuous conduction mode and be able to solve converters operating in DCM
  • Understand the basic dc-dc converter and dc-ac inverter circuits
  • Understand how to implement transformer isolation in a dc-dc converter, including the popular forward and flyback converter topologies.
