Learn power electronics using hands-on experiments and a real-life project.
Alex J. Hanson, who is an assistant professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering at The University of Texas at Austin, has created the TI experimental power electronics reference and curriculum. This hands-on, experimental curriculum with lectures and labs teaches power electronics to university students. It also provides a knowledge base to refresh knowledge for current engineers. Finally, a project is included that leverages power electronic knowledge to create a real-world solution.
