Scope: 5 SWS / 6 LP
Lecturer: Professor Stefan Soter
Frequency: summer semester
Form of examination: oral


Knowledge from the modules electronic components, fundamentals of electrical engineering I, II and III is expected.


The students know the structure and switching behavior of power semiconductors and their function. Furthermore, the students have a comprehensive basic knowledge, which includes the main areas of application of power electronics such as rectification, alternating rectification, conversion and the associated control and regulation. The students are thus able to develop and dimension basic power electronic circuits.
