コロラド大学ボルダー校(University of Colorado Boulder) による Converter Circuits の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



This course can also be taken for academic credit as ECEA 5701, part of CU Boulder’s Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree. This course introduces more advanced concepts of switched-mode converter circuits. Realization of the power semiconductors in inverters or in converters having bidirectional power flow is explained. Power diodes, power MOSFETs, and IGBTs are explained, along with the origins of their switching times. Equivalent circuit models are refined to include the effects of switching loss. The discontinuous conduction mode is described and analyzed. A number of well-known converter circuit topologies are explored, including those with transformer isolation. The homework assignments include a boost converter and an H-bridge inverter used in a grid-interfaced solar inverter system, as well as transformer-isolated forward and flyback converters. After completing this course, you will: ● Understand how to implement the power semiconductor devices in a switching converter ● Understand the origins of the discontinuous conduction mode and be able to solve converters operating in DCM ● Understand the basic dc-dc converter and dc-ac inverter circuits ● Understand how to implement transformer isolation in a dc-dc converter, including the popular forward and flyback converter topologies Completion of the first course Introduction to Power Electronics is the assumed prerequisite for this course....



A really good course on converter circuits. The way Dr. Erickson synthesized inverters from buck converters was eye opening. Many lectures overlook such basic aspects of power electronics synthesis.


The course has intensified my interest towards the field of Power Electronics. One won't find such systematic and lucid teaching anywhere else. I am grateful to the instructors of the course.

Good and straight forward. This is what education should be like. A more rigorous way of teaching does not necessary convey valuable information. Thank you and please keep it up

The course is heavy, you should plan your timings in order to complete tests. You'll get a lot of practice using capacitor and inductors and transformers as well as switches.

This course very useful,because I have learned the topology of the electronic circuit ,and I needed to reviewe the knowledge I learned when I solved the quizzes,which

Very Very interesting course,

Thank you Dr. Robert Erickson,

Thank you Coursera

The most pleasurable thanks go to Ibn Zohr University, Agadir, Morocco

Work with isolated and non isolated converters. Analyze converters in CCM, DCM and define the limits between the two operation modes. Good course.

Good thing we learned a lot during that stage and look forward to completing what we keep from those courses to complete the specialty thank you

This course was very knowledgeable. I found a great opportunity and a platform to learn something. Everything was awesome. And, I learned a lot.

by Gilbert G


This course is challenging and is everything that I expected, I really like how Dr. Erickson lays out the subjects, I definitely recommend it.

The course was very helpful especially the Switch Realization part. It will be good it was told how to find the area of a waveform in LTspice.

by Abdul B


This course is so awesome it have blown my mind. Thank You Coursera. Thank You University of Colorado for bringing such a great course to us.

A real Hard Course designed for professional people. If you are good in Circuits, do come, but if you are weak... You may Get in TROUBLE!!!!

by Giovanni F C G


It was a bit complicated that part 1 of this course, but now i understand a lot of thing about converters. I'm going to the next one!

by Nishchay K


Tricky one, makes your brain work really well to get the solutions and once you start getting stuff, it gets thrilling to solve more!

by Lionel M


Course materials are clearly explained. While the quizzes are really tough, they help you consolidate all the learning you have done.

by Abdul R


Very helpful course. This course has helped me in getting a good insight into Power Electronics. Thanks alot Dr. Robert Erickson.

by Ramesh S


I love the course but difficult in understanding. so need to review again and again for deep understanding by managing the time.



Very good course. In order to complete assignments, one should genuinely work. Will get too know much better about converters.

by Shubhangi T


Learnt a new converter topology "forward converter", the quizzes were of nice level I enjoyed learning !

Thanks professor !

by Javier A L C


Great course! It was really interesting for me. Learned a lot and got to remember old concepts. Totally recommended.

by David M


this class is great! highly recommend if you want to increase your knowledge of most commonly used DC-DC typologies!

by Shaun L


I loved how it wasn't so easy, but at the same time, very doable. The lectures are great, too. An amazing course!
