Power Electronics : Devices, Circuits, and Applications

Power Electronics: Devices, Circuits, and Applications 

Muhammad H. Rashid

Preference :

The fourth edition of Power Electronics is intended as a textbook for a course on power electronics/static power converters for junior or senior undergraduate students in electrical and electronic engineering. It can also be used as a textbook for graduate students and as a reference book for practicing engineers involved in the design and applications of power electronics. The prerequisites are courses on basic electronics and basic electrical circuits. The content of Power Electronics is beyond the scope of a one-semester course. The time allocated to a course on power electronics in a typical undergraduate curriculum is normally only one semester. Power electronics has already advanced to the point where it is difficult to cover the entire subject in a one-semester course. For an undergraduate course, Chapters 1 to 11 should be adequate to provide a good background on power electronics. Chapters 12 to 17 could be left for other courses or included in a graduate course. Table P.1 shows suggested topics for a one-semester course on “Power Electronics” and Table P.2 for a one-semester course on “Power Electronics and Motor Drives.”

Content :
