Design and testing of electronic power processing systems for commercial and aerospace applications.
This is the only undergraduate power electronics laboratory course. It provides the opportunity to experimentally verify the design techniques taught in the ECE 4224 Power Electronics course and to learn experimental techniques that are specific for power electronics.
The required prerequisite is the 4224 Power Electronics course that provides the necessary theoretical background. This course could be taken as an introductory graduate course if a similar undergraduate course was not taken before.
