POWER ELECTRONIC

HI FRIENDS
I WANT TO TAKE A PROJECT IN POWER ELECTRONIC WITH MY TEACHER
BUT I DO NOT KNOW WHAT ARE NEW SUBJECTS IN POWER ELECTRONIC THAT BE CLOSER TO ELECTRONIC THAN POWER.
THANKS.

Re: POWER ELECTRONIC

Power Electronic is using a Power transistor to work under high current or voltage, there are a lot of Power Electronic product in the world, such as LDO, LED drivers , audio amp & moto drivers etc. I don't know what you mean " close to electronic than Power". But the most diff product I think is audio amp, such Class D,T etc. If you are only a bachelor or master, you may find a project of LDO. it will help you rush in the Power Microelectronic region.

POWER ELECTRONIC

i agree with Markie. LDO or DC_DC would be a good project for you .

I agree with jefferson.
Both of them are very usefull.

Although, I am not working in the power electronics branch, but I agree with this idea,
From my previous knowledge about the importance of UPS..

Re: POWER ELECTRONIC

Power + Electronic

Power : mostly electrical circuit or very high power ie. high current (motor drivers drivers etc.) electronics circuits using discrete thrystors, triacs, IGBT s etc.

Electronic : mostly control circuit of power system which just evaluates and control power portion of the system. It does not need any high current high voltage components since it inputs sampled and scaled values as input and provides low power control signals for power drivers.

the relationship is similar to any mechanical machinery with electronic control on it. Machinery mostly handle very high power while electronic only provides low power stimulus to control the operation.

Now after these silly examples, back to the main subject: What to do. As we already know that power needs control and most modern control is designed in electronics (HW & SW). So I suggest pick an electronic control section of a high power chasis or plant. Pick the one it is simple enough for you. If you understand the operation you will understand what it is needed.

Good luck !

Re: POWER ELECTRONIC

Take DC-DC convertors, I suggest Full-Bridge convertor. Understanding this one can help you understanding others back derived convertors.
Also nice topic can be current-mode controle (for example hysteresis window control). It's on you to decide.

Re: POWER ELECTRONIC

You can learn about the new UPS design styles.Nowadays there are ones without transformers at the output of the equipment.And also try learning IGBT rectifier which are now preferred rather than thyristor (SCR) rectifiers.Those type of rectifiers have very pure output DC that you dont damage the utility with a very small input THD....
