Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Knowledge obtained in this subject offers students good orientation in the principles of power converter control unit. Student obtains ability of independent analyzing and synthesis of power converter control unit and is able to apply obtained information by constructing in practice. Knowledge obtained in this subject is a part of a general knowledge of electrotechnic engineer, who is interested in industrial electronics development and applications.

Teaching methods

Summary

Modern and effectual semiconductor converters claim not only very quality switch components but also well thought out algorithm switching and optimal shape control signal individual switch and effectual style of their protection. All this function must procure control circuit converters. Before was their circuit realization mainly analog, in this time prevailing microprocessors control a software algorithm. Subject informs with both style of solution and leads to software methods. The subject focuses on the basic knowledge of operations of power semiconductor converters and shows control algoritms based on modern microprocessors.
