Course Description:
Power electronics is widely used in automotive, industrial and renewable energy applications;
for instance, electrical vehicles, uninterruptable power supplies, and fuel-cell application.
High-efficiency, low cost, and small size are some of the important design goals for any
converter design; however, they of course need to comply with the electromagnetic
interference (EMI) requirements. High-efficiency in power converters can only be achieved
by means of optimized converter design (specially the magnetic components) which then
further calls for a well-engineered EMI filters.

This course is mainly divided in to two parts. The first part deals with the basic circuit
operations of various well-known power converters, and their analysis and design. Next, EMI
noise issues in power converters will be treated in extensive details. EMI noise models for
isolated power converters will be established and analyzed to build optimized EMI filters.

Course Objectives:
1. To introduce latest power converters – used in renewable energy applications – and
their operating principles
2. To impart up-to-date knowledge on inherent EMI issues in power converters
3. To bring the students to a level where they can start understanding the technical
papers, thus can start their research career

Attendance Policy:
Habib University requires that all first and second year students must maintain at least 85%
attendance for each class in which they are registered. Non-compliance with minimum
attendance requirements will result in automatic failure of the course and may require the
student to repeat the course when next offered. This policy is at a minimum. Departments,
schools, and individual faculty members may alter this policy to include stronger attendance
requirements and/or implement them for all levels of students. It is the responsibility of the
student to keep track of their own attendance and speak with their faculty member or the
Office of the Registrar for any clarification.

Academic Integrity:
Each student in this course is expected to abide by the Habib University Student Honor Code
of Academic Integrity. Any work submitted by a student in this course for academic credit
will be the student's own work. There is zero tolerance for plagiarism.
Scholastic dishonesty shall be considered a serious violation of these rules and regulations
and is subject to strict disciplinary action as prescribed by Habib University regulations and
policies. Scholastic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, cheating on exams, plagiarism
on assignments, and collusion.

Plagiarism is the act of taking the work created by another person or entity and presenting it
as one’s own for the purpose of personal gain or of obtaining academic credit. As per
University policy, plagiarism includes the submission of or incorporation of the work of
others without acknowledging its provenance or giving due credit according to established
academic practices. This includes the submission of material that has been appropriated,
bought, received as a gift, downloaded, or obtained by any other means. Students must not,
unless they have been granted permission from all faculty members concerned, submit the
same assignment or project for academic credit for different courses.

The term cheating shall refer to the use of or obtaining of unauthorized information in order
to obtain personal benefit or academic credit.

Collusion is the act of providing unauthorized assistance to one or more person or of not
taking the appropriate precautions against doing so. All violations of academic integrity will
also be immediately reported to the Student Conduct Office.
