Power Design Training Workshop with IEEE PES

Student Group
Tuesday, November 29, 2016
12:30 PM to 2:30 PM
CPE 2.206
Free and open to the public

Power is everywhere! And so are the challenges …. any electronic system will require power! Understanding power electronics and its management is essential to making electronics work. This workshop is for all electrical engineers, not only those with a power focus. The seminar will involve a demo of real “power systems” used in real word applications. At the end of the seminar you will get the chance to design your own power supply using TI’s power design (www.ti.com/webench) tools.

We will cover an introduction to power electronics, power components that are part of power supply design and various converter topologies and their applications. We will show you resources you can refer to throughout your education and career that will enable you to learn more about power management and create your own solutions. You will be introduced to the TI-Power Management Lab Kit (www.ti.com/pmlk) – a great resource for gaining practical experience on this topic. Bring your laptop to participate in the hands-on exercises. You can get started with some pre-work by going to ti.com/wb1 and ti.com/wb2 (require myTI registration) and compare the two buck designs. Identify and be ready to share two reasons why you like one of these designs over the other? We will have fun and prizes!
