DC converters: An overview

By Naman Agarwal Naman Agarwal, an MSc graduate in Sustainable Energy Technology from TU Delft, served as the founding chair of the IAS society at IEEE NITK. Graduating from NITK in 2021, Naman specializes in Power Electronics, with experience from roles at Infineon and Lightyear. At Infineon, he contributed to the industrial power control division, focusing on the development of a SiC MOSFET-based wide input voltage auxiliary power supply. Later, at Lightyear, he played a role in designing a bias power supply solution for a GaN-based multilevel inverter. 23rd Jan, 2024 at 6PM IST

All students from all institutes can apply for this event.

No, Registration is free for everyone participating.

Top 2 teams will receive prizes from a pool of Rs 5000.

It is not necessary to be from ECE or EEE background. Students with interest and knowledge in the basics of Power Electronics can apply for the event irrespective of their background.

To prepare for the competition, participants can review various application notes on prevalent design topologies available online. Understanding these notes will aid in preparing the required design documentation, a key objective for all teams to successfully accomplish. Additionally, exploring YouTube videos and research papers can offer valuable insights.

Yes, the final event will take place offline during working hours at NITK. Selected teams are expected to cover their own transportation expenses.

Round-1 will consist of two subtasks given after both the knowledge-sharing sessions are conducted. They will cover the basics of power electronics and embedded systems.

It will entail the main problem statement, set to be released on Jan 31st, with submissions due by Feb 2nd at 12 PM.

Yes, a food coupon will be provided for the canteen.

No. The test will have questions about the basics of analog and power electronics , basic control systems and Aptitude. It will not have any competitive coding style questions.

A team should can consist a maximum of 4 members.

No, It isn't necessary to have an IEEE member in a team comprising Non-NITK Members

Both round 1 and round 2 have separate sets of criteria which will be clearly mentioned in the problem statement. And in all cases, the organizers' decision will be the final decision.

You'll gain insights into designing industrial-grade power converters and implementing hardware of the designed converter.

It's scheduled for a single day on February 3.

All teams qualifying preliminary test will receive participation certificate.

Participants should have access to Matlab or simulink or Ltspice or any other equivalent software used for simulating circuits.
