INDUSTRIAL ELECTRONICS B
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The course is aimed to bring the students to directly approach the design problems in the field of power electronics, both on devices and the whole modules, by means of electro-thermo-mechanical simulation and considering EMC aspects, which are today critical for power systems. The final part of the course is devoted to photovoltaic systems for energy production.
