TEL-1166 Power Electronics Components, 5 cr
Course TEL-1166 will not be lectured during the academic year 2012-2013, but can be studied (literature, examples) and a private examination can be arranged. Contact prof. Suntio.
Will not be lectured year 2012-2013
Final exam on the topics governed by the lectures and exercises.
Principles and baselines related to teaching and learning
The course gives the basic information of the active, passive and magnetic components typivcally used in implementing power electronic converters in such away that the student can apply the basic terminology and symbols related to the components, can analyze the steady-state and switching power losses and apply the information for cooling design as well as can take into account the special requirements related to the components.
