Objective of the Course

Power electronic converters are now employed in almost every industrial as well as domestic application ranging from few watts to several megawatts. Pulse width modulated PWM) inverters are now became integral part of applications such as adjustable speed drive system, traction system, high voltage DC (HVDC) system, active power filters etc. Generally, two-level inverters are used in high power and high voltage applications suffer from the drawback of generating large common mode voltages, more switching losses etc. Multilevel inverters (MLI) are emerged as a viable alternative over the conventional two-level inverters in high voltage, high power applications due to reduced voltage stress across the power switches, low dv/dt stress, low EMI emissions and better harmonic spectrum of output voltage and current. During the last two decades, MLI has been researched, developed and implemented in high voltage and high power applications. With the development and advances in switching speed and capacity of the power semiconductor devices, various topologies of MLI are developed. The aim of the proposed course is to discuss the various topologies of Multilevel Inverters. Different control schemes such as Sinusoidal PWM and Space Vector PWM techniques will be dealt to improve performance of the MLI.

General Information

The Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee is organizing a course on “Multi Level Inverter and Its Applications” from 04.02.2019 to 08.02.2019. The course is open to teachers from AICTE-recognized engineering colleges. Limited seats are available in this course. Merit will be taken into consideration while selecting candidates. The application on the enclosed form, duly signed by the sponsoring authority, should reach the QIP Office latest by 20.12.2018. The candidate will be informed of his / her selection in advance. Candidates admitted will be provided free hospitality. The boarding and lodging arrangements for all the participants will be made in the Institute Guest House on twin sharing basis. Participants who are not availing this facility will not be entitled to any rebate. Family accommodation is not available on campus. However, personal arrangements in city hotels can be made at own expense. Applications on the attached form with due sponsorship should be sent to the address given below. In case sponsorship takes time, one can send an advance photo copy, so as to reach before the due date by email. However, no candidate will be admitted without due sponsorship. Although, the course is for faculty members from AICTE approved engineering colleges, few seats are available for sponsored candidates from industries. The registration fee is Rs. 10,000/- which includes boarding, course material and other local hospitalities. The DD should be drawn in favour of "Prof. & Head, Continuing Education Centre, IIT Roorkee". This does not include accommodation which can be booked separately on request with payment commitment.
