INTRODUCTION:

The course, Power Electronics & Drives had been introduced in the academic year 2006 with an intake of 18. It has been increased to 24 from the academic year 2015 onwards. Power Electronics is the engineering study of converting electrical power from one form to another. The themes for the study in Power Electronics and Drives provides in-depth understanding of the technologies and scientific disciplines involved in electric energy conversion by means of power electronic converters and electric machines. Moreover, the PED specialization offers core competences in Power Electronic Converters, Electrical Machines and Control Engineering. The objective of this program is to afford the ability to model, analyze, synthesize and develop PED systems. This course enables to develop, construct, operate and test power electronic converters and drives in the laboratory and industries.
