Environmental Engineering in the Power Electronics Education
Publikation/Tidskrift/Serie: EPE 2001 Conference Proceedings
Förlag: EPE Association
Sustainable development and engineering ethics as well as social aspects of engineering are emerging issues related to power electronics. Several important topics like environmentally sustainable products and electromagnetic compatibility fit into this description. Therefore, these issues have recently become part of the advanced course on power electronics at Lund University. The authors' intention with the present overview paper is to share the ingredients and results so far and to review ongoing Nordic activities that could form a basis for others to expand from traditional power electronics. It is our firm opinion that issues like LCA, EPR, EMC, EMI have to be addressed and highlighted in the education of power electronic engineers.
