Book Description

Power , which is a rapidly growing area in terms of research and applications, uses modern technology to convert electric power from one form to another, such as ac-dc, dc-dc, dc-ac, and ac-ac with a variable output magnitude and frequency. It has many applications in our every day life such as air-conditioners, electric cars, sub-way trains, motor drives, renewable energy sources and power supplies for computers. This book covers all aspects of switching devices, converter circuit topologies, control techniques, analytical methods and some examples of their applications.

Designed to appeal to a new generation of professionals, Power Electronics Handbook, 3rd Edition features four new chapters covering renewable energy, energy transmission, energy storage, as well as an introduction to Distributed and Cogeneration (DCG) technology, including gas turbines, gensets, microturbines, wind turbines, variable speed generators, photovoltaics and fuel cells, has been gaining momentum for quite some time now.smart grid technology. With this book readers should be able to provide technical design on assigned power electronics design and lead the design from the concept to production involving significant scope and complexity.

  • Contains 45 chapters covering all aspects of power electronics and its applications
  • Three new chapters now including coverage Energy Sources, Energy Storage and Electric Power Transmission
  • Contributions from more than fifty leading experts spanning twelve different countries
