Pulsed Power & Power Electronics
Please check back Fall of 2012 for next short course date or for information, contact email@example.com.
This short course is designed for Electrical Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Physicists, and any other professionals who are involved in the work of pulsed power and power electronics (P3E). In this course you will be introduced to the basics of pulsed power technology.
This course will be presented via Powerpoint presentations, viewgraphs, and lectures by faculty members of the Center for Pulsed Power and Power Electronics at Texas Tech University.
Course topics include:
- Introduction to Pulsed Power
- Basic Pulsed Power Circuit Theory and Charging Power Supplies
- Basic Pulsed Power Electromagnetic Field Theory
- Basic Physics Issues (surface flashover;liquid, gas and solid breakdown; and field emissions)
- High Power Switching
- Energy Storage Methods
- Pulse Forming Networks and Lines
- Voltage Multiplier Circuits (Marx, Blumlein, Spiral, and Transformer)
- Grounding, Shielding, and Safety
- Explosive Generators
- Circuits and EM Fields Computer Simulations
Each topic will be covered in a two-to-three-hour lecture format.
Continuing Education Units
2.9 CEUs will be awarded for participation in the entire short course. No partial credits can be given.
