M. Tech. in Power Electronics

Course Overview

Electrical Engineering is a discipline of engineering that utilizes natural resources for generation, transmission and utilization of electric power. In addition, electrical engineering deals with design, analysis, prototyping, manufacturing, and maintenance of electrical generators, electric motors, transformers, transmission and distribution equipment, wiring and lighting and electrical appliances. The present day electrical engineers focus on use of renewable sources like solar photovoltaic, wind and other non-renewable energy sources for power generation. In the recent past, the use of electronics for control of electrical systems is gaining importance and the power electronics is one of the specializations of electrical engineering.

Power Electronics is a branch of Electrical Engineering which deals with power conversion from one from to another form using Inductors, Capacitors, Semiconductor devices (Diode, Thyristor, MOSFET, IGBT etc.). The power may be from mW (point on load applications) to MW (Power Systems). The basic conversions are: AC - AC (Cycloconverters), DC - DC (Converters), DC - AC (Inverters) and AC - DC (Rectifiers). Applications of power electronics range in size from a switched mode power supply in an AC adapter, battery chargers, audio amplifiers, fluorescent lamp ballasts, through variable frequency drives and DC motor drives used to operate pumps, fans, and manufacturing machinery, up to gigawatt-scale high voltage direct current power transmission systems used to interconnect electrical grids. Power electronic systems are found in virtually every electronic device.

In hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), power electronics are used in two formats: series hybrid and parallel hybrid. The difference between a series hybrid and a parallel hybrid is the relationship of the electric motor to the internal combustion engine (ICE). Devices used in electric vehicles consist mostly of dc/dc converters for battery charging and dc/ac converters to power the propulsion motor. Electric trains use power electronic devices to obtain power, as well as for vector control using pulse width modulation (PWM) rectifiers. The trains obtain their power from power lines. Another new usage for power electronics is in elevator systems. These systems may use thyristors, inverters, permanent magnet motors, or various hybrid systems that incorporate PWM systems and standard motors
