Power Electronics Devices and Circuits Second Edition by V. Jagannathan.
Rapid developments in power electronics during the last few decades have revolutionized the art of power modulation and control. Today, power semiconductor devices and converters using these devices can handle high voltages and currents at high speeds. Their applications in different areas are ever increasing aided by the use of sophisticated digital systems like microcontrollers and computers. It is felt that this ever-growing subject, power electronics, must be learnt by students with clarity and ease. It is therefore written in a simple straightforward style emphasizing the core concepts underlying various power electronics circuits without delving deep into complex, circuitous and mathematical elaborations.
This book is expected to serve as a student-friendly text to the undergraduate students of electrical and electronics engineering. It can also be used as a textbook for one-semester course in power electronics.

More Details About The Content Of The Book:
The text begins with an introductory chapter on the area of power electronics with discussions ranging around the characteristics and ratings of power semiconductor devices. Further, the chapter gives a bird’s eye view of various types of converter circuits along with their major applications.
Chapter 2 details the underlying principle of operation of practical power semiconductor devices such as power diodes, thyristors and devices like DIAC, TRIAC and LASCR belonging to thyristor family. An elaborate treatment of gate-commutated devices like GTOpower BJT, power MOSFET, and IGBT is also presented in the chapter 2.
Chapters 3, 4 and 5 unlock the operating principles of various types of converters, — ac to dc converters, ac to ac converters and dc to dc converters (choppers and SMPS). These chapters integrate within themselves different methods of phase, frequency and voltage control for achieving high level of performance. Analysis of each class of converter circuit is undertaken leading to the evaluation of their performance parameters.
Chapter 6 provides an in-depth coverage of all inverter types such as parallel, series, single phase bridge type, three phase bridge type and current source inverters, laying emphasis on voltage and waveform control. Power controllers and their applications form the subject matter of Chapter 7. This chapter outlines the dc and ac drives, HVDC transmission and uninterrupted power supply (UPS).
The last chapter relates the conventional power semiconductor devices to most advanced integrated circuit fabrication technology. The microprocessor-based control and protection circuits have enhanced the quality of power modulation and control. This chapter not only gives an overview of various microcontroller chips but also considers their applications in triggering and fault diagnosis.
Each chapter is accompanied by adequate number of solved problems, review questions and problems involving both short and lengthy answers and solutions. The solved problems are so chosen that going through them reinforces the understanding of the basic concepts.
