Module description

Important principles of modern power-electronics for the conversion and control of electrical power are discussed together with the basic building blocks of power systems and modern motors and drives. The necessary analysis is drawn in and the systems aspects emphasised. Students learn fundamental methodologies and techniques for qualitative and quantitative analysis of signals and systems. These are illustrated using examples of typical physical systems, especially control systems, and applicable to power and information processing and process control.
