Innovative power converters

The course is held by prof. Mengoni and prof. Zarri and is part of the training provided for IBES PhD Students - a.y.2022/2023

  • Date: 13 FEBRUARY 2023  from 9:00 to 17:00

  • Event location: Room 1.2 - Department of Electrical, Electronic, and Information Engineering "Guglielmo Marconi" DEI - Viale Risorgimento, 2 - Bologna - In presence and online event

  • Type: IBES Course


The course focuses on the most recent converters used in high-power applications, such as multiphase inverters and multilevel converters. Also, it illustrates a survey of the most common topologies of power converters, such as the LLC converter and the resonant converters, their control schemes and modulation strategies. The analysis of three-phase converters is based on the space-vector notation. The converters examined in the course are not commonly treated in regular courses, but their use is progressively more frequent in industrial applications.
