Power Electronics Circuits Devices And Applications 4th Edition.pdf

The fourth edition of Power Electronics is meant as a textbook for a course on power electronics/static power converters for junior or senior undergraduate students in electrical and electronic engineering.

It also can be used as a textbook for graduate students and as a reference for practicing engineers involved within 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 during a typical undergraduate curriculum is generally just one semester.

For an undergraduate course, Chapters 1 to 11 should be capable provide an honest background on power electronics. Chapters 12 to 17 might be left for other courses or included during a graduate course.

The revolution in the development of power devices is proceeding at an impressive speed. The spreading of IoT, Cloud, Industry 4.0 and the growth of the automotive sector with electric vehicles, are changing power design in the electronics sector. In this issue, we have a look at some of the challenges in power management.

Silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) semiconductors, both wide-bandgap, are suitable for power electronics, producing smaller, faster, and more efficient devices with the capability to withstand voltages and temperatures which are higher than the ones in silicon-based components. Many market analysts estimate that silicon substitution with SiC or GaN can increase conversion efficiency by over 92%.

This introduction aims at placing the present textbook within the interdisciplinary topics related to power electronics and control systems. It offers an overview of power electronic converter roles and objectives in the context of their use as power processing elements of power systems and emphasizes the crucial role of their control. Then, the needs of analysis through modeling and simulation of switching converters are assessed. Finally, the scope and organization of the book are stated and its contents outlined.
