This book is the result of the extensive experience the authors gained through their year-long occupation at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the University of Banja Luka. Starting at the fundamental basics of electrical engineering, the book guides the reader into this field and covers all the relevant types of converters and regulators. Understanding is enhanced by the given examples, exercises and solutions. Thus this book can be used as a textbook for students, for self-study or as a reference book for professionals.
The book “Power Electronics” by Branko L. Dokić and Branko Blanuša contains ten chapters, and deals with the most signicant items of power electronics. It is well organized with lot of examples, gures, and tables. The rst chapter is “Introduction.” In this chapter basic elements, as well as some circuits and components used in power electronics are briey presented.
Chapter 2 covers basic semiconductor components, “Diodes and Transistors,” and particularly covers their use as switches in power electronics circuits.
Chapter 3 is focused on “Regenerative Switches.” The description is wide and detailed and this chapter may be of interest not only for students, but also for professionals who use these components in practice.
Chapter 4 is “PWM DC/DC Converters.” The converters are classied. All basic topologies of these converters are analyzed in detail in both continuous current mode (CCM) and discontinuous current mode (DCM). “Control Modules” are presented in Chap.
This chapter 5 contains a number of control circuits used in power electronics. This chapter may be of interest not only for professionals in the eld of power electronics, but also in related elds such as automotive control, pulse electronics, etc
Chapter 6 covers “DC/AC Converters–Inverters”.
The next chapter is AC/DC converters, i.e., rectiers.
eighth chapter, which covers “AC/ AC Converters.” The chapter describes single-phase and threephase AC/AC voltage converters and both direct and indirect frequency AC/AC converters.
the impression is that the book presents a comprehensive coverage of power electronics. It covers a wide range of topics relevant to power electronics. So, it might be used both as a textbook for students and as a reference book for practicing engineers. In my opinion, there is a signicant academic and theoretical contribution made by this book.
