A course on microprocessor-controlled solid state converters. Major topics include: switching devices (SCR, MOSFET, IGBT, GTO, etc.), dc-dc switch mode converters, diode and thyristor rectifiers, current and voltage source inverters, industry applications and microprocessor programming techniques. Typical control schemes for these converters will also be discussed. Important concepts are illustrated with laboratory design projects. Microprocessor based digital controlled power electronic platform will be used in the projects. (Formerly ELE 654).
