This course introduces signal processing to a power engineer with the objective of fulfilling one of the most pressing needs faced in power engineering – filter design. The course begins with a basic introduction to the concept of signal processing, discrete time systems and basic hardware applications. The course dives into the mathematics behind signal processing in order to translate many of the obscure concepts into plain English with the final objective of implementation in hardware. The course will then have code-along sessions where students will learn how filters are designed, analyzed and implemented using Python, Numpy, Scipy and Matplotlib. The course has a section on how to install and setup software on different operating systems and used only free and open source software, making the course and the materials accessible to students irrespective of their background.

• Basic electrical engineering, basic mathematics, basic programming

This course is for

• Electrical engineering students and professionals
Power electronics researcher and software developer
I did my Master’s and PhD in power electronics after which I spent several years working for both big companies like ABB and GE as well as a number of start-ups. I specialized in the field of power converter control and smart grids and have published prolifically in high impact international journals and conferences besides also being the author of two books.
I started programming at the age of 14 and over the past 20 years have programmed in several languages – C, C++, Python, JavaScript. I started taking a keen interest in open source software after I became a Linux user when I was a graduate student.
My expertise in electrical engineering and programming therefore resulted in me creating open source software for electrical engineers. I use open source software for teaching electrical engineering to students and practicing engineers with the typical theme of my courses being the application of programming to solve engineering problems.
