Basic Electronics and Concept of DC Machines
The power electronic devices and converters employing power electronics devices are now widely used in domestic applications as well as in industrial applications like Electrical Drives, Power Systems, Renewable Energy based power generation, heating applications etc. The course is aimed to act as a foundation block and to provide exposure about various aspects (construction, characteristics, operation, ratings etc.) of power electronic devices. It also covers power electronic converters that provide variable DC voltage.
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Explain the construction and characteristics of Power semiconductor devices and fundamental of thyristors and family.
2. Analyze, operate and design ac-to-dc converters.
3. Analyze, operate and design dc-to-dc converters.
4. Apply the knowledge of power electronic converter for speed control of DC motors.
5. Simulate power electronic converters and their control scheme.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
