M.E., Power Electronics & Drives

INTRODUCTION

Power electronics deals with conversion and control of electrical power. Power electronics is often defined as a hybrid technology that involves the discipline of power and electronics. Power Electronics provides the electrical circuit concepts behind the different working modes of power converters so as to enable deep understanding of their operation and to equip the required skills to derive the criteria for the design of power converters starting from basic fundamentals. The course provides the electrical circuit concepts behind the different working modes of inverters and ability to design different single phase and three phase inverters.

The faculty of electrical and electronics engineering offers a 2 year masters program in power electronics and drives. This program has an increasing exposure towards growing of industrial needs. This program includes importance of detailed study of power electronic devices and its applications for AC drives and DC drives, power system voltage stability and its control and the trends in the renewable energy systems.

VISION
