Actuators and Power Electronics

Actuators and Power Electronics Online Course

Note: This course is designed for mechatronics students. It contains a brief introduction to power electronics (Lectures 1 to 8), which is inteded to provide the basis for mechatronics design projects. The rest of the course, (Lecture 9 to 21) deals with modelling and control of electric machines.
