Power Electronics and Switch Mode Power Supply
Power electronic circuits have revolutionised almost every device that we use today from PC's to TV's, microwave ovens and heavy industrial drives.
Switch Mode Power Supplies (SMPS) have thus become an important part of equipment design in all types of industrial equipment and an understanding of the different types and designs has become essential for reliable operation of complex equipment.
This workshop gives you a fundamental understanding of the basic components that form a SMPS design. You will understand how the selection of components affects the different performance parameters and operation of the SMPS. Typical practical applications of the SMPSs in industry will be discussed.
The concluding section of the workshop gives you the fundamental tools in troubleshooting SMPS designs confidently and effectively.
Even though the focus of the workshop is on the direct application of this technology, you will also gain a thorough understanding of the problems that can be introduced by SMPSs such as harmonics, electrostatic discharge and EMC/EMI problems.
