Power Electronics Technology

This module is intended to cover the operation and technology of the modern power conversion system with a focus on low to medium power applications in electronics.

Most modules require a 2.2 degree in a related discipline or equivalent professional experience. Should you have any queries regarding your eligibility, please contact us at info@advancecentre.ie

N.B Required knowledge of electronic circuits, and circuit theory.

On completion of this module learners should:

1. Have gained an advanced knowledge and understanding of the role which DC-DC converters play in powering electronic systems and a knowledge of the technologies which underpin such converters.

2. Be able to identify and distinguish between different power converter circuit topologies, formulate the circuit equations which describe their operation and hence analyse their operation.

3. Be able to perform detailed design of a DC-DC converter to meet a given specification including the design of the circuit, its closed loop controller, and the design or make appropriate selection of the components from which it is built.

4.Be able to simulate using advanced circuit simulation, build and test a prototype DC-DC converter circuit including the ability to conduct experiments to analyse its performance.

5. Gain an understanding of the importance of engineering standards and their relevance to aspects of dc-dc converter design.

6. Effectively communicate their design approach and choices through written technical reports on the laboratory work.
