    AC – DC Converters

    This course covers one of the most important converter groups – rectifiers. Detailed analyses of single- and three-phase rectifiers, diode and thyristor-based, are given, together with the most common applications. The possibilities of the converter’s output filtering stages are discussed. Power quality issues are also examined.

    DC – DC Converters

    The analysis of the converters topologies in this Specialization starts with converters with the smallest number of switching components – choppers and DC power supplies. Different techniques for DC voltage conversions are addressed. The operation principles of single-, two- and four-quadrant choppers are analyzed, as well as non-isolated and isolated DC supplies.
