CET743 Power Electronic Converters II

Course Provider

School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE)



Academic Unit



The objective of this course is to familiarize the participating individuals with modeling of three-phase DC-AC inverters, control and applications of grid-connected DC-AC inverters. Steady-state analysis of buck converters, boost converters, buck-boost converters and cascaded DC-DC converters will also be discussed.

This course is part of:

- Graduate Certificate in Power Engineering
- FlexiMasters in Power Engineering
