Building on solid state device and electromagnetic contributions to the series, this text book introduces modern power electronics, that is the application of semiconductor devices to the control and conversion of electrical power. The increased availability of solid state power switches has created a very rapid expansion in applications, from the relatively low power control of domestic equipment, to high power control of industrial processes and very high power control along transmission lines. This text provides a comprehensive introduction to the entire range of devices and examines their applications, assuming only the minimum mathematical and electronic background. It covers a full year's course in power electronics. Numerous exercises, worked examples and self assessments are included to facilitate self study and distance learning.

The first treatment of advanced knowledge of electrical sneak circuits and its analysis method in power electronics The work on sneak circuit and its analysis methods for power converters contributes to the reliability of power electronic systems worldwide. Most books in the subject concentrate on electronic systems, but this book is perhaps the first to examine power electronic systems. It describes the sneak circuit phenomena in power converters, introduces some SCA methods for power electronic systems and proposes how to eliminate and make use of sneak circuits. The book is divided into three separate sections. Firstly, the sneak circuit paths and sneak circuit operating conditions are discussed in different kinds of power converters, including resonant switched capacitor converters, basic DC–DC converters, soft–switching converters and Z–source converters; Secondly, the sneak circuit analysis guidelines for power converters based on generalized matrix, adjacency matrix and Boolean matrix are presented respectively; Thirdly, the sneak circuit elimination techniques are introduced and verified in several power converters, with applications of sneak circuits described in conclusion. Written by a lead author with extensive academic and industrial experience, the book provides a complete introduction and reference to students and professionals alike. Contents include: Fundamental Concepts, SCA of Resonant Switched Capacitor Converters, SC of DC–DC Converters, SC Analysis Method (including Boolian Matrix), and Applications of SC in Power Converters. Highlights the advanced research works in the sneak circuit analysis, by a leading author in the field Original in its treatment of power electronics converters; most other books concentrating on electronics systems, and aimed at both introductory and advanced levels Offers guidelines for industry professionals involved in the design of power electronic systems, enabling early detection of potential problems Essential reading for Graduate students in Electrical Engineering: Engineers and Researchers in Power Electronics

The subject of power electronics is concerned with solid state devices for the control and conversion of electrical power. These silicon devices are designed mainly for switching the transfer current from one part of an electrical circuit to another. Power electronics has a wide range of applications from the small systems used in electrical appliances to very large systems for the supply and distribution of electricity. Although it can be difficult to completely define where the boundary lies between electronics and power electronics, this resource succeeds at breaking down the discipline. Containing the useful concepts and building blocks that go into making a power converter operate successfully, this book provides a description of the characteristics of different types of power semiconductor devices and their application to power converter circuits. Applications to power transmission, electric drives, and medical equipment are included to illustrate the wide range of power electronics in both small and high power circuits.

A concise, thorough introduction to modern power electronics This comprehensive overview of the modern tools and techniques of electric power conversion covers the fundamentals of power electronics. Unlike other textbooks on the subject, which often include a great deal of extraneous information. Introduction to Modern Power Electronics presents essential material that can be covered easily in a one-semester course. This streamlined text examines low-, medium-, and high-power conversion issues and the electronic converters that process power for a variety of applications. Following recent trends in power electronics technology, greater stress is placed on pulse-width modulated (PWM) converters than in any other textbook. Modern power electronic converters, such as the resonant dc-link and multilevel inverters or matrix converters, are thoroughly covered. Special features include: * Comprehensive, easy-to-understand coverage of the principles and methods of electric power conversion using a hypothetical generic power converter * Descriptions of various types of semiconductor power switches and complementary components and systems for power electronic converters * In-depth discussions of all power conversion types: ac-to-dc, ac-to-ac, dc-to-dc, and dc-to-ac * Separate chapter on switching power supplies A companion set of 48 PSpice circuit files, available on the Internet, constitutes a virtual laboratory of power electronics. This valuable teaching tool contains models of most of the power electronic converters and techniques covered in the book. It gives students the opportunity to tinker with converters and see how they actually work. Ideal for electrical engineering students at the senior undergraduate level, Introduction to Modern Power Electronics is also a handy reference tool for advanced students and practicing engineers.

This new text takes the reader from the very basics of analogue electronics to an introduction of state-of-the-art techniques used in the field. It is aimed at all engineering or science students who wish to study the subject from its first principles, as well as serving as a guide to more advanced topics for readers already familiar with the subject. Attention throughout is focused on measurable terminal characteristics of devices, the way in which these give rise to equivalent circuits and methods of extracting parameter values for them from manufacturers data sheet specifications. In the practical application of these equivalent circuits, step-by-step analysis and design procedures are given where appropriate. Throughout the book, emphasis is given to the pictorial representation of information, and extensive use is made of mechanical analogues. This, combined with the self-assessment questions, copious exercises and worked examples result in an accessible introduction to a key area of electronics that even those with the most limited prior experience will find invaluable in their studies.
