Prerequisite
Semiconductor physics, Analog electronics, Electronic devices and circuits, Electrical machines, Microprocessors.
Rationale
This course provides strong foundation for understanding and designing of domestic and industrial power electronics circuits. Students can understand the conversion of power from AC to variable DC, Fixed DC to Variable DC, DC to variable AC and Fixed AC to variable AC using power electronics circuits. This subject also helps to understand the speed control of DC and AC drives and design of UPS and SMPS.
Course Outcome
1. Understand the power semiconductor devices
2. Design and analyze various SCR firing and commutation methods.
3. Explain the operation of phase controlled rectification.
4. Understand the design and operation of various industrial based power electronics circuits like inverters, choppers and cycloconverters.
5. Designing and repairing of SMPS, UPS , battery charger and circuit breakers.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
