Why this course?


MATLAB Simulation plays a very important role in the research and development of engineering projects, products, and systems. It helps to predict the performance of the system, to validate control strategies, and saves the time of product development.

MATLAB offers incredible flexibility to design, test, and analyze the power electronics converter with the help of built-in ‘simulink’ and ‘simpowersystem/simscape’ library components. However, it is also of the same importance to know the limitations and constraints of the power switches available in the MATLAB library.

This course explains every detail required to understand the design of various power electronics converters with the help of MATLAB simulation.

Power electronics industries are booming in the market by taking place in almost every electronics product including low power chargers, medium to large scale solar charge controllers, high power industrial inverters, range of motor controllers, and HVDC transmission lines.

This course covers hands-on simulation practice starting from a very basic electric circuit to advanced result reporting skills.

In the first section (Ch 2) you will learn how to simulate basic AC & DC circuits with the help of MATLAB software. This section "Simulation of Electric Circuits" is designed for beginners and it explains all about simulation and analysis of electric circuits. It also explains better ways of representing results for reports and project documents. It covers formatting tips for better visualization and appearance of canvas which helps in representing simulation model as block diagram view by taking a screenshot of the canvas.

In the second section (Ch 3- Ch 6), you will learn how to simulate and analyze power electronics converters with the help of MATLAB software. It covers the simulation of all basic converters including chopper (DC/DC), Inverter (DC/AC), Regulator (AC/AC), and phase-controlled rectifier (AC/DC). It includes designing power circuit and control circuits both. It also covers how these simulations can be used for effective analysis and a better understanding of power electronics circuits.

This course includes fully developed simulation files of more than 25 power electronics circuits.
