In the first lecture I define a real life engineering problem and ask the students to suggest a solution. The selected problem is such that the solution requires the knowledge of the Course which I am going to teach. As a result, the students are unable to find any solution.After this I tell them that for the solution of the problem knowledge of the course are required. Also, I explain the problem in detail and establish a layout for solution based on the course content. This exercise increases their interest for the course. After completion of each module I discuss with the students how the content of the module contribute to the partial solution of the problem.
Take Power Electronics (EE603) as an example. I am teaching this course to the 3rd year electrical engineering students. The problem I defined is “How to develop a home inverter “. I explained the problem and solution as follows.

  1. The different parts of home inverter are AC-DC converter, battery charge controller (DC-DC converter), and DC-AC converter (PWM voltage source Inverter).
  2. The power electronics switches are required to develop the converters & inverters.
  3. Their semiconductor physics, V-I & gate characteristics, protection & gate triggering scheme of the devices & circuits.
  4. Topology, operating principle, control scheme of the converters & inverters.

It can be easily found that the above topics are covering the major syllabus of the course. My experience with this strategy is inspiring.

Your site has surely offered me personally with
merely the details that I just required. I just currently have been undertaking
exploration on this theme for some time, and this seems to have taken a long
time to discover a website that delivers
all the facts that I require. I actually glimpse toward reading
even more blogs authored by you in the foreseeable future, and definitely will look
here initially the next time I have got a research requirement.


Definitely Stop by this amazingly interesting site
