ELN 2320   Power Electronics I   Credits: 5

In this course, students will be introduced to the fundamental theory and characteristics of AC Sine waveforms, common semi-conductor devices and their specifications and applications. They will review static electricity, and atomic structure as well as circuits containing rectifier diodes as unregulated power supplies utilizing half wave and full wave rectification will be examined. Students will also be introduced to clamping and clipping circuits. Regulated circuits utilizing Zener diodes will be discussed. Related topics such as transformer selection, filter specifications, and circuit protection are covered. The use of transistors configured as electronic switches will be reviewed. The main characteristic drive requirements and their switching responses will be investigated. Finally, the students will be able to demonstrate proper setup and use of Oscilloscopes for measurements.
