ECE 642: Advanced Power Electronics for Vehicle Electrification
This is an advanced class in power electronics. Advanced converter topologies, control methods, and analyses used in electric-vehicle and power-system domains will be discussed. Topics include state-variable modeling of DC-DC converters for closed-loop control system design; isolated DC-DC converter topologies (half, full, and dual bridges) and resonant DC-DC converter topologies (series, parallel, and series-parallel) for wireless power transfer and battery charging; soft-switching concepts and control methods for isolated DC-DC converters; single-phase and three-phase inverter design; inverter control methods, including six-step, Sine PWM, Space Vector PWM, and Discontinuous PWM; and the design and control of multi-level and modular multi-level inverters.
Required Hardware: It is a program requirement that all learners have, or have access to, a computer with a touch-screen display or a tablet with stylus/digital pen capability to capture writing in real time using Qwickly Jot tool located in Blackboard. Although you will likely not use the tool in this course, you will use it for other courses in this program.
Several courses in this program require learners to use MATLAB® and Simulink to complete assignments. MATLAB® is one of the top 10 programming languages used for teaching, research, and project-based learning. As such, Kettering University collaborates with MathWorks to provide free, unlimited use of MATLAB® to students and faculty. Also, note that MATLAB® is available through the KU Cloud.
