CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The ever-growing shortage of energy resources continues to make the
development of renewable energy sources, energy-saving techniques, and power
supply quality an increasingly critical issue. To meet the need to develop
renewable and energy-saving power sources, green energy source systems require
large numbers of converters. New converters, such as the Vienna rectifier and
z-source inverters, are designed to improve the power factor and increase power
Power Electronics: Advanced Conversion Technologies gives those working in
power electronics useful and concise information regarding advanced converters.
Offering methods for determining accurate solutions in the design of converters
for industrial applications, this book details more than 200 topologies
concerning advanced converters that the authors themselves have developed. The
text analyzes new converter circuits that have not been widely examined, and it
covers the rapid advances in the field, presenting ways to solve and correct
the historical problems associated with them.
The technology of DC/DC conversion is making rapid progress. It is estimated
that more than 600 topologies of DC/DC converters exist, and new ones are being
created every year. The authors completed the mammoth task of systematically
sorting and categorizing the DC/DC converters into six groups and have made
major contributions to voltage-lift and super-lift techniques. Detailing the
authors’ work, this book investigates topics including
traditional AC/DC diode rectifiers
controlled AC/DC rectifiers
power factor correction
unity power factor techniques
pulse-width-modulated DC/AC inverters
multilevel DC/AC inverters
traditional and improved AC/AC converters
converters used in renewable energy source systems
With many examples and homework problems to help the reader thoroughly
understand design and application of power electronics, this volume can be used
both as a textbook for university students studying power electronics and a
reference book for practicing engineers.
