COURSE-LEVEL EDUCATIONAL GOALS:
An understanding of essential material in electrical power for Mechatronics Engineers, with a focus on Robotics, Transport, Manufacturing Industry and Extraction Industry.
- Short Quiz - Circuits Review 5%
- Exercises and Designs - Laboratory/Simulation-based Reports 25%
- Quiz 1 10%
- Mid Term 20%
- Quiz 2 10%
- Final Exam (F2F and Remote) 30%
There will be five 'Labs' based on in person Experiments followed by design and simulation. These will be conducted in groups of 2 or max 3. Two such groups may share simulations and designs, to be noted on the reports. All members of such groups and pairs of groups if wanted should be in the same Lab Section, to ensure the same shared introduction
to the lab, guidance, and TA help, which is available in those sessions.
MATERIALS + SUPPLIES:
MUR: Mohan, Undeland and Robins, Power Electronics 3rd Edn, Wiley (Covers most of the course material in great depth)
M-Intro; Mohan, Power Electronics a First Course, Wiley (A good text to compliment the lectures, but misses some topics which are in a second book).

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity website http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the university community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the university. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the university. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
Students with a faith background who may need accommodations during the semester are encouraged to assess their needs as soon as possible and review the Multifaith religious accommodations website. The page outlines ways they begin working toward an accommodation and ensure solutions can be reached in a timely fashion.
