Course Description

Learn the leading software MATLAB in numerical computing through step-by-step exercises. In this course, we will learn to simulate AC-DC, DC-AC, AC-AC, and DC-DC converter circuits, electric circuits, electrical machines, solar and synchronous generators in the MATLAB using Simulink tool circuits.

In this course, you will learn the simulation using MATLAB of:

  • Single-phase half-wave controlled rectifier
  • Model the DC machine in no-load case
  • Single-phase bridge controlled rectifier
  • Model the DC machine in presence of load torque
  • Single-phase AC chopper with R and RL load
  • Simulating the DC machine using power library
  • A DC-DC converter as buck regulator
  • Three-phase Inverter
  • Boost regulator
  • Single-phase half-wave controlled rectifier
  • Buck-Boost regulator
  • Induction motor
  • Single-phase half-bridge inverter
  • PV cell in solar energy
  • Single-phase and three-phase bridge inverter
  • PID controller
  • Single-phase half-wave controlled rectifier
  • Analyzing data from the PSCAD program
