10.    Course Goals (acquired competencies):  The objective of this course is to give to students fundamental knowledge about power converters, and how they work. Students will be also introduced with their application and techniques of computer modelling in order to study their performance and characteristics. With this course students will be competent to determine the characteristics of power converters and and perform full analysis of them, as well as be able to model and simulate their performance.

11.    Course Syllabus: Introduction and classification of power converters. Characteristics of semiconductor devices applied in power converters. Single phase uncontrolled rectifiers. Single phase full-controlled rectifiers. Three phase uncontrolled rectifiers. Three phase full-controlled rectifiers. Complex topologies of rectifiers. Current commutation in rectifiers. Power factor and efficiency in rectifiers. Inverters. Reversible power converters. Frequency converters. AC voltage converters. DC converters (choppers).

12.    Learning methods:  Interactive lectures, numerical and laboratory exercises.
