This text reveals all key components of rectification, inversion, cycloconversion, and conversion circuits. It authoritatively describes switching, voltage and current relationships, and converter properties, operation, control, and performance as utilized in most practical applications. Authored jointly by a veteran scholar and an accomplished researcher in the field Power Converter Circuits highlights methods grounded in classical mathematics and includes an abundance of numerical worked examples.
Features hundreds of chapter-specific problems, with solutions provided separately at the end of the book
