CAIRO BOOKS's Description
A Thorough Overview of the Tools and Techniques of Modern Power
Electronics—Now Fully Updated
Over the past decade, the field of power electronics has seen a surge of new
trends and novel applications—from the growing significance of PWM rectifiers
and multilevel inverters to the widespread use of power converters in electric
and hybrid vehicles and renewable energy systems. This new edition of
Introduction to Modern Power Electronics provides comprehensive coverage of
everything from the basic principles and methods of electronic power conversion
to the latest developments in the field.
More concise and user-friendly than other textbooks on the subject, this
streamlined guide presents essential material that can be covered easily in a
one-semester course. It defines the basic types of power conversion and
control, presents the electronic converters that process power for a variety of
applications, and describes the various semiconductor power switches and
complimentary components and systems of the converters. This Second Edition
In-depth discussions of all power conversion types: ac-to-dc, ac-to-ac,
dc-to-dc, and dc-to-ac
An overview of advanced control methods used in today’s power electronic
A new chapter on the applications of power electronics in clean energy systems
An extensive body of examples, exercises, computer assignments, and simulations
An Instructor’s Manual with solutions to all problems
In addition, a companion set of forty-eight PSpice text files of typical power
conversion circuits is available online, constituting a virtual laboratory of
power electronics. This valuable teaching tool contains models of most of the
converters covered in the book, giving students the opportunity to tinker with
the converters and see how they actually work.
Ideal for undergraduate students specializing in electrical engineering,
industrial engineering, or renewable energy, Introduction to Modern Power
Electronics is also a handy reference tool for graduate students and practicing
