The course can be completed by passing the final exam. The course grade can be upgraded by one by carrying out the offered homeworks.


The objective of the course is to give the basic knowledge on diode and thyristor-based rectifiers, switched-mode converters and active-switch-based rectifiers/inverters. The student can sketch the waveforms associated to the converters. The students can solve the voltage/current stresses for selecting the power-stage components. The students get the knowledge of basic control and modulation methods of the converters.
