Capstone Design Project in Power Electronics
Learners will design a DC-DC converter that powers USB-C devices (20 V at 5 A) from a dc input voltage source such as a lithium-ion battery pack or a desktop computer power bus. Aspects of the project will include: ● Design of converter power stage, gate drivers, and magnetics. Requires mastery of courses 1, 2, and 5. ● Simulation to verify correct steady-state operation. Requires mastery of courses 1 and 2. ● Design of converter control system. Requires mastery of courses 3 and 4. ● Simulation to verify correct control system operation. Requires mastery of course 4 ● Preparation of a report documenting the design and its performance The report will be peer graded.
