ECE 194J: Power Electronics
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT SANTA BARBARA
DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL AND COMPUTER ENGINEERING
Power electronics is an increasingly important part of modern electrical systems. This course is intended
to be an introduction to modern switched-mode power electronics and applications. We will cover
modern converter/inverter topologies for the control and conversion of electrical power with high
efficiency with applications in power supplies, renewable energy systems, lighting, electric/hybrid
vehicles, and motor drivers. The course will also discuss the switching behavior and driver circuits for
rectifier diodes, power MOSFETs, IGBTs, and other selected three-terminal devices. We will also
discuss the optimal design of magnetic components (power-inductors and power-transformer).
The grade will be based on homework assignments, including one or two lab assignments, a term project,
and a take-home final. The term project might involve a paper design or experimental demonstration
(better yet, both) of a particular switch-mode converter/inverter topology. Students will be able to
individually select the relative weighting of the term project and final exam in their course grade.
