M.Tech (Power Electronics)

Majority of world’s power needs is catered by Electrical energy. In addition, owing to the ever – increasing demand for electrical power and fast – depleting fossil fuels, there is an increased importance being given to renewable sources of energy. These facts necessitate a technology to control the flow of electrical energy and also to enable renewable sources to take the role of power suppliers. This technology is ‘’Power Electronics”, which encompasses products and systems to convert and control flow of electrical energy.

The basic functions of Power Electronics include power conversion, power conditioning, controlling the prime mover and so on. Current focus at a global platform is to interface two massive technologies – Power Electronics and Power Systems, to work in tandem and contribute towards a better energy scenario.

Power Electronics finds a vast array of applications in diverse fields, from domestic to industrial, commercial, aero – space applications
