This course sets the groundwork for more advanced concepts in Power Electronics. The Professor was very explicit and the homework assignments were of a good strength to help ground the notions learnt.
Very nice course. Even if you are already familiar with power electronics, it will help you to form a system of knowledge and utilize rational approaches for task solution of any level of complicity.

LEARNT THE BASICS OF POWER ELECTRONICS, THE DC TRANSFORMER MODELLING, LOSSES AND EQUIVALENT CIRCUIT IN STEADY STATE and the hands on LTSPICE
By Utku K•
A very good beginning to the topic. Using together with the notes and downloadable slides of the videos makes everything easier to comprehend
By Saad A•
I found this course very helpful as my MS research is all about converters and this course has made me clear about the basics of converters.
By Dehming T•
Tests your understanding about the basic power electronic material that may seem easy on first sight. Takes fundamentals to the next level.
