Power Electronics is the application of solid state electronics for the control and conversion of electric power. It is a branch of Electrical Engineering which deals with design, control, computation and integration of nonlinear, time varying energy processing electronic systems with fast dynamics. Power Electronics is an important and rising discipline owing to the fact that power consumption has increased across the world in manifold. In contrast to electronic systems concerned with transmission and processing of signals and data, in power electronics substantial amounts of electrical energy are processed. The program basically deals with generation, transmission and distribution of electric power and electrical devices connected to such systems including generators, motors and transformers. Power Electronics aims to inculcate the efficiency among the students so that there is no wastage in electricity due to the process.
