An effective course in switch-mode power supplies (SMPs) should ideally contain an element of hands-on design and experimental work in addition to the study of the theory and simulations. This element should complement the study of the theory of SMPs and simulation of their operation. However, this approach is extremely time consuming and expensive and can only be offered to a very few number of students. This paper details a course structure that is a compromise between a time-intensive and expensive practical approach and a purely theoretical simulation-based course. The proposed course structure reduces the costs and the staffing/space commitments while still maintaining a very strong emphasis on practical design and experimental work.
