EET 461 Power Electronics (3)
Power electronics is a technical elective for senior-level students in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology (ECET) baccalaureate degree program. The course introduces students to the different topologies used to convert electrical power via the use of solid state switching. Specifically, the course presents ac-dc, ac-ac, dc-dc and dc-ac converters. The different switching devices used (diodes, SCRs, MOSFETs, etc.) are discussed. Laboratory exercises complement the lecture material. Relevant topics such as power quality, EMI and applications of power electronics are presented.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
