The Power Electronics Handbook Book Excerpt:

Less expensive, lighter, and smaller than its electromechanical counterparts, power electronics lie at the very heart of controlling and converting electric energy, which in turn lies at the heart of making that energy useful. From household appliances to space-faring vehicles, the applications of power electronics are virtually limitless. Until now, however, the same could not be said for access to up-to-date reference books devoted to power electronics. Written by engineers for engineers, The Power Electronics Handbook covers the full range of relevant topics, from basic principles to cutting-edge applications. Compiled from contributions by an international panel of experts and full of illustrations, this is not a theoretical tome, but a practical and enlightening presentation of the usefulness and variety of technologies that encompass the field. For modern and emerging applications, power electronic devices and systems must be small, efficient, lightweight, controllable, reliable, and economical. The Power Electronics Handbook is your key to understanding those devices, incorporating them into controllable circuits, and implementing those systems into applications from virtually every area of electrical engineering.

Digital Power Electronics and Applications Book Excerpt:

The purpose of this book is to describe the theory of Digital Power Electronics and its applications. The authors apply digital control theory to power electronics in a manner thoroughly different from the traditional, analog control scheme. In order to apply digital control theory to power electronics, the authors define a number of new parameters, including the energy factor, pumping energy, stored energy, time constant, and damping time constant. These parameters differ from traditional parameters such as the power factor, power transfer efficiency, ripple factor, and total harmonic distortion. These new parameters result in the definition of new mathematical modeling: • A zero-order-hold (ZOH) is used to simulate all AC/DC rectifiers. • A first-order-hold (FOH) is used to simulate all DC/AC inverters. • A second-order-hold (SOH) is used to simulate all DC/DC converters. • A first-order-hold (FOH) is used to simulate all AC/AC (AC/DC/AC) converters. * Presents most up-to-date methods of analysis and control algorithms for developing power electronic converters and power switching circuits * Provides an invaluable reference for engineers designing power converters, commercial power supplies, control systems for motor drives, active filters, etc. * Presents methods of analysis not available in other books.
