About this Specialization
Applied Learning Project
Learners will start with supplied Spice simulation examples to design and verify their own high-performance closed-loop controlled dc-dc converters, ac-dc power-factor correction rectifiers, and photovoltaic dc-ac inverters. The final course in the Specialization includes a peer-graded project where learners design and test control loops in a complete 5 kilowatt photovoltaic (PV) power system including a maximum power point tracking boost converter and a single-phase grid-tied inverter.
How the Specialization Works
A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.
Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.
Earn a Certificate
When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
