Application of Power Converters in Renewable Energy Sources
Course title: Application of Power Converters in Renewable Energy Sources
Number of credits (ECTS): 6
Weekly number of classes: 3+1+1+0
Prerequisite for enrollment of the subject: Passed: Fundamentals of Electric Circuits
Course Goals (acquired competencies): The main purpose of this course is to upgrade student’s knowledge for power converters, as well as to introduce them to practical work and application of converters in different areas of power engineering, automation and renewable energy sources through novel laboratory exercises. They will be also introduced to the novel techniques of modelling and computer simulations of frequently used converters. With this course students will gain competences for practical use of power converters in different areas of electrical engineering and their computer modelling, simulation and analysis.
Total available number of classes: 180
