EC4150 Applied Power Electronics

The course presents steady state and dynamic analysis of modern power electronic converters for advanced shipboard electric power distribution with emphasis on comparison to military standards. Physics-based modeling are used to simulate power converters and their control systems in microgrids for Navy shipboard and shore applications.  The course includes some more advanced topics like resonant converters, renewable energy power conditioning converters and grid-interface inverters.
