Power electronics projects, In this article you will get basic ideas of power electronics projects. I will talk about basic level projects of power electronics and then I will move forward towards semester level projects of power electronics and their applications in industry. At the end of this article I will give you ideas about power electronics final year projects. Mostly final year students do power electronics projects related to inveters and UPS only. But there are a lot of fields of power electronics in which you can work for your final year project. Lets start with question of why we need power electronics and why it has gained a lot of popularity in last 20-30 years.
Power electronics projects demand
Power electronics gained a lot of popularity in last 20-30 years because the demand to control power from one level to another level and from AC to DC form is increasing day by day. For example In AC motor driver circuits we need to vary voltage and frequency to get variable speed for variable speed applications. Like wise in your computer power supply we need different level of DC voltages from single source 12V, 5V and 3V. Similarly there are enormous application of power electronics in AC motor drives, DC motor drives, HVDC, DC to DC converters, inverters, FACTS and UPS. you can work on all these projects as your final year project. That is why demand of power electronics projects are increasing day by day.
What you need to know before working on power electronics projects :
Just like to get admission in engineering field or to become an electrical engineer you should have good command in mathematics. Similarly before choosing power electronics project as your final year project, you should have background on following topics or you should work on these topics to complete your project successfully.
- What is diode ? How diode works? How to choose diode for specific rating for your required project?
- what are power transistor, MOSFET and IGBTs? How they work ? How to choose them for your project?
- What is gate driver circuit? Why we need of gate driver circuit?
- What is turn on and turn of time of semiconductor devices?
- What is pulse width modulation? What is duty cycle? How to generate PWM?
- What is heat sink? How to use heat sink for protection?
- What are snubber circuits ? And how to use them?
I will try to post articles on above topics in future one by one. For update about above articles subscribe to our blog to get updates in your email inbox or keep visiting our website.
