A FLEXIBLE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
Our learning environment is loved by our enrolees. It is intuitive to use and can be accessed through any device, a computer, mobile phone or tablet. Here is how it will help you -
- Video lectures are recorded in a face to face or lab environment with dynamic lecture slides at the backdrop. This makes the learning environment as effective as the instructor being right next to you.
- Lab exercises are showcased through videos that allow you to learn in a hands-on way as experienced instructors show you the way.
- Quizzes and assignments provide a checkpoint for you to assess how you are doing in the course and how far your learning has come.
- Forum and live chat support ensures that all your course related queries are solved in timely manner. Having the right guidance at the right time can make a huge difference in your understanding of the material and save hundreds of painful hours trying to find the right information yourself.
- Final exam is conducted and a certificate is provided upon passing the course requirements and exam. This is your certification of achievement which is highly regarded in the EV industry.
Our courses are created from scratch with hands-on learning at the forefront. In this course, the hands-on learning exercises are conducted through simulation software like LTspice, Pspice, and TI Webench. These softwares are relevant in the industry today and having skills in them will be valuable from Day 1 of your career as a Power Electronics engineer.
Some examples of hardware exercises are -
1. Simulation of characteristics of different devices(Diodes, MOSFETs, BJTs)
2. Simulation of different converter topologies(Buck, Boost, Flyback)
If you'd like to get a hardware kit along with the course, we recommend purchasing our DCDC kit which comes with a lab manual for further lab exercises. This is optional, but some students prefer it as it helps them solidify the skills that they learned through simulations in a physical application.
