Description

This course is designed to allow you to simulate any power electronics device in MATLAB/Simulink, including rectifiers, dc-to-dc converters, and inverters. This course not only gives a review of the theory of how rectifiers, dc-to-dc converters, and inverters work, but also gives several examples on how to simulate these devices using MATLAB/Simulink. The MATLAB/Simulink models for the power electronics devices created during the lectures are available for download with each lecture. The course is divided into the following sections:

1. Introduction to MATLAB/Simulink for Power Electronics: in section 2, we will begin by reviewing the theory behind the semiconductor devices that are used in power electronics, such as diodes, power BJTs, power MOSFETs, IGBTs, and Thyristors. We will then take a look at the libraries available in Simulink to represent these devices in our models. After that, we will take a look at how we can model voltage sources, current sources, and passive components (resistors, capacitors, and inductors), as well as how we can put them together in a model using Simulink and how we can take measurements in the model to ensure proper simulation.

2. Rectifier Simulations in MATLAB/Simulink: we will begin section 3 by reviewing the theory behind the operation and topologies of power electronics rectifiers. We will then see how we can simulate both single-phase and three-phase rectifiers using Simulink.

3. DC-to-DC Converter Simulations in MATLAB/Simulink: we will begin section 4 by reviewing the theory behind the operation and topologies of power electronics dc-to-dc converters. We will then see how we can simulate buck, boost, and buck/boost converters.

4. Inverter Simulations: we will begin section 5 by reviewing the theory behind the operation and topologies of inverters. We will then see how we can simulate single-phase and three-phase inverters.

As mentioned above, in each section, we will go over several models to illustrate how we can design and simulate power electronics devices in MATLAB/Simulink. The models are also available for download so that you can follow along, as well as use these models and modify them to create your own designs.

By learning how to simulate power electronics devices in MATLAB/Simulink, you will be able to further your career in electrical engineering and power electronics.

Remember that Udemy offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. I am also always available for questions while you go through the course to ensure everything is clear.

See you in the course!
