Fundamental of Power Electronics

This course was made to cover the Fundamental of Power Electronics needed for a student to understand this subject.

This course was made to cover the Fundamental of Power Electronics needed for a student to understand this subject, for a researcher to start working on power electronic design, and for a curious person to satisfy them with answers to their questions. The course organized in systematic way in order to fill the gaps with logical means. The course will take the student from basic level to advanced level of understanding how different power electronic converters operate. First chapter will introduce the student to the topic with definitions and how different semiconductor work. In the second chapter, mathematical tools needed to analyze and design power converters will be covered. then in the third chapter, Rectifiers will be studied and various topologies will be shown. after that, chapter 4,5 and 6 will cover DC-DC Converters, DC-AC Converters, and AC-AC Converters respectively, and all different power converters will be implemented using MATLAB/SIMULINK software in order to give the student the opportunity to start designing converters and pursue novel converters for researchers.
