These courses introduce the student to the most common power electronic components (power diode, thyristor, and power transistor) as well as to many power electronic devices used in numerous applications today (power diode single-phase and three-phase rectifiers, choppers, single-phase and three-phase inverters, thyristor single-phase and three-phase bridges, solid-state relays or SSRs, and thyristor ac power controllers). Training continues with the following three courses which deal with common industrial applications using power electronics:
The following two courses from the Electric Power Technology Training Program, can be optionally added to the Power Electronics Training System to enhance student training in power electronic applications:
These two courses familiarize the student with the use of hydropower to produce electrical power using synchronous generators, as well as with the transmission of large amounts of electrical power using high-voltage, direct-current (HVDC) lines, two advanced applications using thyristor power electronics.
