ECET 25700 - Consumer Power Electronics
Credit Hours: 4.0.
This course is a study of the application of circuit techniques to amplifiers used in power and RF electronics, including bipolar junction transistors, power MOSFETs, thyristors, RF amplifiers, switching power supplies, and appropriate applications. Computer-aided analysis of circuits is used.
After completing this course, the student should be able to:
1. Compute the average, RMS, and power produced by a wide variety of wave shapes using integral definitions.
2. Describe the performance of N and P channel enhancement mode MOSFETs.
3. Analyze and design linear power amplifiers using op amps and enhancement mode MOSFETs driving resistive loads.
4. Compute appropriate thermal parameters for power semiconductors.
5. Select power op amps and audio ICs to meet a given application.
6. Apply thyristors, snubbing, thyristor triggers and proportional power interfaces.
7. Analyze and design transistor power switches, drivers, H bridges, buck, boost, and class D audio amplifiers.
8. Layout prototype boards containing low level, high voltage, and current, high frequency and digital signals.
9. Evaluate the performance of a variety of the circuits described above, using appropriate standard laboratory measurement procedures, and simulations.
