Introduction to Power Electronic Converters:
In this course, you will learn why we need power converters. We will discuss the basic principles of power conversion and you will receive a brief overview of the various types of power converters. You will learn how to recognize different voltage, current, and power levels, as well as the AC or DC character of electrical power, through examples of common, present-day electrical applications.
Power conversion and efficiency in battery systems:
In this course, you will be taken into the lab to get acquainted with power conversion principles and efficiency measurements. You will learn how to match the right type of converter to various real-world battery applications, while assessing overall system performance with respect to energy efficiency. The lessons will give you the knowledge you need to be able to list the main origins of losses in battery packs and judge the impact of the charge and discharge rates on battery efficiency and effective capacity. You will also see some examples of the use of power electronic interfaces for batteries and compare power electronic interfaces across applications.
