The courses on power electronics convey the topic in concentrated form to deepen understanding. Characteristics of power semiconductors and the basic standard circuits are investigated. All the experiments work with single-phase safety extra-low voltage, which is non-hazardous. Only small amounts of materials and little space are needed for the experiments.

Learning objectives

  • Basic physical principles of power semiconductors
  • Design of key basic circuits for power electronics
  • Assessment of properties of rectifiers and converters


The courses cover the following topics:

  • Semiconductors in power electronics
  • Wiring and control
  • Switching processes and commutation
  • Uncontrolled rectifier circuits
  • Characteristic values for periodic signals
  • Controlled line-commutated converters
  • Circuits: M1C, M3C, B2C, B6C
  • Semi-controlled rectifiers
  • Self-commutated converters
  • Semiconductor switches and choppers
  • Switches and actuators for DC
  • Inverters
  • Static converters for closed-loop control
  • Static converters for drive technology
