CET744 Power Electronic Converters III

Course Provider

School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE)



Academic Unit



The objective of this course is to familiarize the participating individuals with understanding of blot plot and modeling and control of DC-DC buck converters. Analysis of AC-DC rectifiers including rectifier harmonics and related standards, harmonic compensation methods, and modeling and control of boost PFC converters will also be discussed.

This course is part of:

- Graduate Certificate in Power Engineering
- FlexiMasters in Power Engineering

At the end of the course, learners  are able to:

1. analyse the dynamic model of CCM buck converters;

2. design controllers for CCM buck converters and analyse system stability and;

3. identify the cause or source of harmonics introduced by power electronic converters and apply different techniques to achieve harmonic mitigation.
