Power Electronics plays an important role in processing and controlling the flow of electric energy by supplying voltages and currents in forms that are optimally suited for the user loads from a few watts to several mega watts. The application areas include wide spectrum such as Heating and Lighting Control, AC and DC Power Supplies, Electric Motor Control, Energy Conservation, Process Control and Factory Automation, Transportation, HVDC, FACTS Devices, Power Quality Improvement etc.
The PG program includes courses in Mathematics, Cultural Education and the core subject areas. In core subject areas, emphasis is given on power processors with recent and emerging power switching devices, electrical machines and their control, measurement and processing of signals, signal processors, control systems and digital system design required to build any power electronic equipment with necessary controllers. The program offers electives for the students to enhance the knowledge of emerging machines, areas of power electronics applications and techniques to optimize the designs.
The Program culminates with a project work in which the students are encouraged to work on specific areas involving design, simulation, fabrication and testing of any power electronics system having research/industrial application values.
