Power Electronics (Part 1): semiconductor power components: diode, thyristor, fully-controlled components; self-commutated converters: basic circuits, bridge circuits, inverter operation, voltage quality; choppers: step-down, step-up and buck-boost, continuous / discontinuous conduction modes, H-bridge; inverters: basic concepts, three-phase VSI, PWM and square-wave switching schemes.

Power Electronics (Part 2): basic elements of static power converters (switch and source concepts); switch-mode power supplies; complements on inverters; resonant power converters; power losses calculation in static converters.
