learning outcome

Die Studierenden sind in der Lage, leistungselektronische Bauelemente für die Applikation sachgerecht auszuwählen und einzusetzen. Sie kennen die wesentlichsten Eigenschaften der Bauelemente. Sie sind fähig, die optimalen Verfahren zur Ansteuerung und zum Schutz anzuwenden. Sie können das thermische System beurteilen, Verlustleistungen abschätzen und Kühlsysteme auslegen. Sie kennen die Besonderheiten der Bauelemente bei Reihen- und Parallelschaltungen sowie in ZVS/ZCS-Applikationen.

The students are able to choose correctly power semiconductor devices for different typical applications. They should know the static and dynamic characteristics of state-of-the-art  power switches. They are able to apply optimised control and protection technologies.They would be able to calculate the power losses and to design the cooling system.They will be familiar with the behaviour in parallel and series connection as well as in ZVS/ZCS application.
