Course content

This 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% 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.
