Objectives
THE COURSE AIMS AT LEARNING MODELS AND METHODS FOR THE DESIGN OF ELECTRONIC POWER CONVERTERS AND METHODS FOR THE CONTROL AND CONVERSION OF ELECTRICAL ENERGY WITH HIGH EFFICIENCY. THE COURSE ALSO AIMS TO PROVIDE SKILLS FOR THE SIZING OF DC AND AC DRIVES FOR THE AUTOMOTIVE SECTOR (INCLUDING CHARGING STATIONS FOR MOTOR VEHICLES) AND ELECTRIFIED TRANSPORT AND FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS.
SKILLS ARE PROVIDED FOR THE DESIGN, IMPLEMENTATION, AND CONTROL OF CONVERTERS FOR THE CONNECTION OF GENERATORS FROM RENEWABLE SOURCES TO THE ELECTRICITY GRIDS AND OF STATIC COMPENSATION SYSTEMS FOR GRID DISTURBANCES (STORAGE SYSTEMS, FACTS, UPS).
WITH REFERENCE TO RENEWABLE ENERGIES, THE COURSE PROVIDES ONLY THE TOOLS USEFUL FOR THE MODELING, ANALYSIS, AND DESIGN OF POWER CIRCUITS AND CONTROL SYSTEMS FOR INVERTERS, RECTIFIERS, AND DC-DC CONVERTERS. FINALLY, THE COURSE AIMS TO MAKE STUDENTS SENSITIVE, THROUGH LABORATORY EXPERIENCES, TO THE EVALUATION OF ELECTRONIC POWER SYSTEMS IN REAL CONDITIONS OF USE.
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING: THE COURSE PROVIDES TOOLS AND KNOWLEDGE FOR THE UNDERSTANDING AND USE OF METHODOLOGIES FOR THE ANALYSIS AND SYNTHESIS OF POWER CONVERTERS FOR TRANSPORT, ELECTRICITY GRIDS, ENERGY MANAGEMENT, AND INDUSTRY. IT ALSO OFFERS KNOWLEDGE FOR THE SYNTHESIS OF PROTECTION CIRCUITS FOR POWER ELECTRONIC DEVICES AND INITIATES THE UNDERSTANDING OF ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY PROBLEMS RELATED TO STATIC ENERGY CONVERSION. UNDERSTANDING OF THE PROBLEMS RELATED TO THE ELECTROMECHANICAL CONVERSION OF ENERGY AND OF THE TOOLS FOR THE ANALYSIS AND SYNTHESIS OF AC AND DC DRIVES AND, MORE GENERALLY, OF THE PROBLEMS RELATED TO THE COUPLING OF THE ELECTRICAL MACHINE - ELECTRONIC POWER CONVERTER.

APPLIED KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING: THE STUDENT AT THE END OF THE COURSE WILL BE ABLE TO SIZE SWITCHING SYSTEMS AND ELECTRICAL DRIVES WITH THE RELATIVE CONTROL SYSTEMS IN REAL OPERATING CONDITIONS; WILL BE ABLE TO DESIGN AND INTERFACE ELECTRONIC CONVERTERS TO ELECTRICAL NETWORKS AND USER SYSTEMS. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SIZE, DESIGN, AND CONTROL ELECTRONIC POWER CONVERTERS TO INTERFACE ACTIVE LOADS (STORAGE SYSTEMS) AND GENERATORS FROM RENEWABLE SOURCES TO ELECTRICAL NETWORKS. HE WILL BE ABLE TO DESIGN ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS FOR POWER AND ENERGY MANAGEMENT FOR HOME AUTOMATION, AUTOMOTIVE, AND RAILWAY APPLICATIONS. DIMENSIONING CHARGING SYSTEMS FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES.
INDEPENDENT JUDGMENT: KNOWING HOW TO IDENTIFY THE MOST APPROPRIATE DEVICES, METHODS, AND SUPPORT SOFTWARE TOOLS FOR THE MANAGEMENT AND CONSTRUCTION OF ELECTRONIC CONVERTERS FOR ENERGY MANAGEMENT APPLICATIONS IN THE CIVIL, INDUSTRIAL, AND TRANSPORT SECTORS.
COMMUNICATION SKILLS: KNOWING HOW TO WORK IN A TEAM. KNOWING HOW TO PRESENT, ARGUING, THE CHOICES RELATED TO THE TYPE OF CONVERTER, DRIVE, AND CONTROL SYSTEM TO DESIGN AND IMPLEMENT SOLUTIONS FOR INTERFACING TO THE NETWORK OF ELECTRICAL LOADS, GENERATORS FROM RENEWABLE SOURCES, AND FOR THE ADVANCED CONTROL OF DRIVES IN THE CIVIL FIELD, OF TRANSPORT AND INDUSTRIAL.
