Simulating Power Electronic Circuits using Python:
Basics of Digital Signal Processing for Power Engineers:
Simulation of Magnetics for Power Electronics using Python:
I am currently writing a book based on the course material of my second course on digital signal processing. I hope the first draft of the book to be ready by the end of the month.
The next steps will be courses on different topics in power electronics. To begin with, there will be a course on control of single-phase grid connected converters. In this I will go into complete details of how to control the current injected by a single-phase converter that could potentially be used for interfacing a PV panel or a battery or for any other purpose.
I have several courses planned for the future. The eventual objective is to establish an online power electronics university with continuously expanding courses that tackle the latest breakthroughs in power electronics. The objective is to take complex research topics and break them up into courses with simulations for students to be able to learn on their own pace.
A few tentative topics will be as follows. Since, my Master's thesis was on active filters, one course could be on shunt and series active filters in distribution systems. The course will cover techniques of injection and also provide simulation cases with converter topologies and closed loop control strategies. Another potential course will be on UPS and the applications in distributed systems. Going further, I will examine parallel-connected UPS systems to form a microgrid.
Once, I tackle the topic of microgrids, I will then examine integration of renewable energy sources such as a solar PV and wind turbines. I will examine how co-ordinated control of renewable energy sources can result in a smart grid.
