This is a course for majors in power electronics. At the end of the course, the
students are expected to describe a variety of processes for alternative power generation in
one form to electric energy. Describe, control, and evaluate power electronics topologies
for alternative power generation. Explain important technical and economical considerations regarding use of alternative power generation.

Theory, models, and design of process for alternative power generation using
power electronics. Thermoelectric, solar-thermal, and photovoltaic generation. Wave, hydro, vapor, pressure, and wind turbines. Fuel cells. Dynamic equations to describe power electronics topologies. Power conditioners and storage. Introduction to feedback applied to
power electronics. Introduction to power electronics for electric vehicles. Introduction to
nuclear electronics. Introduction to alternative power markets. Emphasizes the design
(industrial & residential) for alternative power generation.

Electric motor drive systems, modeling of D.C and A.C machines, Characteristics and selection, analysis and design of converter fed open loop and closed loop D.C and A.C drive systems, design of controllers, breaking methods.
