Course content

This prestigious training programme has been developed to provide an up-to-date and dynamic course in Power Electronics and Drives, and their applications.

The control and conversion of electric power using solid-state techniques are now commonplace in both the domestic and industrial environments. A recent estimate suggested that over 40 per cent of all electric power generated passes through silicon before reaching its final destination.

A knowledge and understanding of the diverse disciplines encompassed by Power Electronics: devices, converters, control theory and motor drive systems, is therefore essential to all power engineers.

This course aims to provide a specialist education in power electronics and drives techniques, covering key fundamental principles along with modern applications and current practices.
