The course will engage engineers in a combined lecture/laboratory instructional format, providing hands-on experience in the DC/DC converter analysis, modeling, simulation, control design and frequency domain measurement techniques.
With individual step-by-step guidance in the lab, participants will learn through simulation and measurements how to solve design problems using current-injection control and voltage-mode control, and will see the impact of loop gain design on closed-loop performances such as stability margins, small-signal and large signal dynamics, output impedance and audio susceptibility. Attendees will gain a clear understanding of power converter control through exercises such as determining dc and ac characteristics of power stages.
Lectures: The Inn at Virginia Tech & Skelton Conference Center (901 Prices Fork Road)
Lab: 253 Whittemore Hall (1185 Perry Street, Virginia Tech campus, within walking distance)
