Course description

The course covers various converter types, including ac-dc, dc-ac, and ac-ac converters, and emphasizes the underlying principles that distinguish them.

The underlining difference in three-phase converters is the modulation method, either line-frequency commutation, where phase-shift modulation is used, or self-commutation, where pulse width modulation is used. In many converters, we have an intermediate dc bus. It is most often a voltage source, but in some cases current source too. Both cases are discussed during the course.
