Master lecture series: Power electronics for high-precision applications

Series of lectures about the analysis of power electronics for high-precision applications, such as semiconductor lithography, medical systems (e.g. MRI), and high performance audio. Insight in design and realization for high-precision applications.

This mastercollege is organized in cooperation with the Technical University Eindhoven, faculty Electrical Engineering, group Electromechanics and Power Electronics and open to participants PAO Techniek en Management. Regular students of the TU will attend the lecture series too. The lectures will be held in English.

Subject is the analysis of power electronics for high-precision applications, such as semiconductor lithography, medical systems (e.g. MRI), and high performance audio. Multi-physical and interdisciplinary knowledge of causes, effects and mitigation of distortion in switched-mode power converters. Insight in design and realization for high-precision applications. Knowledge and implementation of continuous and discrete time-domain control and their limitations.
