Aims

Lectures in power electronics taught by PES are aimed at communicating basic concepts and their relationships as well as analysis methods, where in all cases industry applications are used as basis of the explanations. Through the methodical development of the converters and control schemes, an early attempt is made to awaken the students’ creativity and to encourage them to synthesize new converter structures by combining basic functions. Further important elements are the mathematical description of the stationary and dynamic operating behavior and computer exercises introducing circuit simulation and CAD which today forms a main pillar of all industrial design processes. Finally, in order to cover the entire spectrum from analysis and dimensioning to measurement techniques and experimental analysis, knowledge acquired in lectures and exercises can be applied in specialized practicals using industry-like laboratory hardware or in Semester and Master theses, where undergraduates work on sub-tasks of research projects under close supervision of PhD students or Postdocs.
