For students to:
- Understand the concepts and basic operation of efficient switched-mode
power conversion, including basic circuit operation and magnetics design.
- Understand how to analyze and model steady-state converter operation,
switch realization, and continuous/discontinuous operation modes for
converters with and without transformer isolation.
- Understand dynamic ac modeling of converters using averaging techniques,
small signal transfer functions, and classical feedback loop design.
- Understand how to analyze and model design techniques related to
magnetic components in switched-mode power converters.
After taking this course students will be able to recognize and use
the following concepts, ideas, and/or tools:
