Fundamentals of DC Choppers in Power Electronics

Learn the fundamentals of DC choppers for electrical power engineering in the third course of power electronics series

Welcome To Our Course "Fundamentals of DC Choppers in Power Electronics"


This third course in power electronics is designed for anyone who would like to learn about DC choppers in power electronics, which are used to convert the fixed DC voltage into variable DC by different methods, which will be discussed in the course.

You are going to learn about the different DC chopper circuits such as step up and step down DC choppers, the buck, boost and buck-boost converters, in addition on how to select components for these circuits.


What are we going to learn from this course?


✔️ Definition of DC choppers and applications of DC choppers.

✔️ Generation of the duty cycle.

✔️ Types of circuits used to step up or step down the DC voltage.

✔️ Analyze of the step-down DC chopper with R and R-L-E load,

✔️ Analyze of the step-up DC chopper with R, RL, and RE loads.

✔️ Analyze of a buck regulator, boost regulator, and buck-boost regulator circuits.

✔️ Equations to get the minimum values of inductance and capacitance required for those circuits.
