Coursera Advanced Converter Control Techniques

University of Colorado Boulder via Coursera

  • Overview
  1. Coursera
    Platform:
    Coursera
    Provider:
    University of Colorado Boulder
    Length:
    4 weeks
    Effort:
    2-3 hours/week
    Language:
    English
    Credentials:
    Paid Certificate Available
    Part of:
    Power Electronics Specialization
    Overview
    This course covers advanced converter control techniques, including averaged-switch modeling and Spice simulations, modeling and design of peak current mode and average current mode controlled converters, as well as an introduction to control of single-phase ac grid tied rectifiers and inverters. Design and simulation examples include wide bandwidth point-of-load voltage regulators, low-harmonic power-factor-correction rectifiers, and grid-tied inverters for solar photovoltaic power systems. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to model, design control loops, and simulate state-of-the-art pulse-width modulated (PWM) dc-dc converters, dc-ac inverters, ac-dc rectifiers, and other power electronics systems.

    This course assumes prior completion of Introduction to Power Electronics, Converter Circuits, and Converter Control
