Welcome to Design of Modern Power Semiconductor Components (2021)

Description: The main component of modern Power Electronics circuits is the semiconductor power switch. This course presents the fundamentals of Power Switches operations from a physical point of view, together with the specific peculiarities and the reason to use them in a special application. 

An overview on different packaging technologies and their properties, advantages and disadvantages, is also given. Requirements from the applications and possibilities to tackle them with a semiconductor package solution will be proposed.

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 3.000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately four months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
