ELET 6004 - Advanced Power Systems
This course is the study of electrical power transmission and conversion. A project involves the design of a dc-dc converter from theory through a completed printed circuit board. Circuit topologies studied include linear, buck, boost and buck-boost converters. On the utility scale, ac circuit theory is applied to grid power flow and transmission line models. Synchronous generators and transmission lines are modeled in theory and examined in the laboratory. Power electronics are analyzed for their role in conversion and transmission.
