Preface: In the past three decades, the field of power electronics has witnessed unprecedented growth in research and teaching worldwide, and has emerged as a specialization in electrical engineering. This growth is due to expanding market demand for integrated and networked power electronics-based circuits and systems in all kinds of energy processing and conversion applications. Moreover, the need for power electronics engineers and researchers equipped with knowledge of new energy conversion technologies has never been greater.

Power Electronics is intended as a textbook to teach the subject of modern power electronics to senior undergraduate and first-year graduate electrical engineering students. Because of the breadth of the field of power electronics, teaching this subject to undergraduate students is a challenge. This textbook is designed to introduce the basic concepts of power electronics to students and professionals interested in updating their knowledge of the subject. The objective of this textbook is to provide students with the ability to analyze and design power electronic switching circuits used in common industrial applications.

The prerequisites for this text are a first course in circuit analysis techniques and a basic background in electronic circuits. Chapter 3 gives an overview of diode switching circuits and basic analysis techniques that students will find useful in the remaining chapters.

Material Presentation

Unlike many existing texts in power electronics, Power Electronics targets mainly senior undergraduate students majoring in electrical engineering. Since the text is intended to be used in a three-credit-hour course in power electronics, topics such as power semiconductor devices, machine drives, and utility applications are not included. Because of limited lecture times, one course at the undergraduate level cannot adequately cover such topics and still present all power electronic circuits used in energy conversion. This text contains sufficient material for a singlesemester introductory power electronics course while giving the instructor flexibility in topic treatment and course design.

The text is written in such a way as to equip students with the necessary background material in such topics as devices, switching circuit analysis techniques, converter types, and methods of conversion in the first three chapters. The presentation of the material is new and has been recommended by many power electronics faculty. The discussion begins by introducing high-frequency, non-isolated dc-to-dc converters in Chap. 4, followed by isolated dc-to-dc converters in Chap. 5. Resonant soft-switching converters are treated early on in Chap. 6. The traditional diode and SCR converters and dc-ac inverters are presented in the second part of the text, in Chaps. 7, 8, and 9, respectively.

Examples, Exercises, and Problems

Unlike many existing texts, this text provides students with a large number of examples, exercises, and problems, with detailed discussions on resonant and softswitching dc-to-dc converters.

Examples are used to help students understand the material presented in a given chapter. To drill students in applying the basic concepts and equations and to help them understand basic circuit operations, several exercises are given within each chapter. The text has more than 250 problems at different levels of complexity and difficulty. These problems are intended not only to strengthen students’ understanding of the materials presented but also to introduce many new concepts and circuits. To help meet recent Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) requirements for design in the engineering curriculum, special emphasis is made on providing students with opportunities to apply design techniques. Such problems are designated with the letter “D” next to the problem number, such as D5.32, which is Design Problem # 32 in Chap. 5. Students should be aware that such problems are open-ended without unique solutions. A bibliography is included at the end of the text, and a list of textbooks is given separately.

Web-Based Course Material

Ancillaries to this text are available on a dedicated website, www.fpec.ucf.edu, where both faculty and students can access additional material such as a complete set of lecture notes, additional sample quizzes and problems, up-to-date text corrections, and the opportunity to submit new ones.
