Introduction to Modern Power Electronics

Introduction to Modern Power Electronics

Rolf Katzenbach

Preference :

This text is primarily intended for a one-semester introductory course in power electronics at the undergraduate level. However, containing a comprehensive overview of modern tools and techniques of electric power conditioning, the book can also be used in more advanced classes. Practicing engineers wishing to refresh their knowledge of power electronics, or interested in branching into that area, are also envisioned as potential readers. Students are assumed to have a working knowledge of electric circuit analysis and basic electronics. During the five years since the second edition of the book was published, power electronics has enjoyed robust progress. Novel converter topologies, applications, and control techniques have been developed. Utilizing advanced semiconductor switches, power converters reach ratings of several kilovolts and kiloamperes. The threat of unchecked global warming, various geopolitical and environmental issues, and the monetary and ecological costs of fossil fuels represent serious energy challenges, which set off an intensive interest in sources of clean power. As a result, power electronic systems become increasingly important and ubiquitous. Changes made to this third edition reflect the dominant trends of modern power electronics.
