Power Electronics By Daniel W. Hart

Power Electronics By Daniel W. Hart
This book is intended to be an introductory text in power electronics, primar- ily for theundergraduate electrical engineering student. The text assumes that the student is familiar with general circuitanalysis techniques usuallytaught at the sophomore level. The student should be acquainted with electronicdevices such as diodes and transistors, but the emphasis of this text is on circuit
topology and function rather than on devices. Understanding the voltage-currentrelationships for linear devices is the primary background required, and the concept of Fourier series is also important. Most topics presented in this text are appropriate for junior- or senior-level undergraduate electrical engineering students. The text is designed to be used for a one-semester power electronics course, with appropriate topics selected or omitted by the instructor. The text is written for some flexibility in the order of the topics. It is recommended that Chap. 2 on power computations be covered at the beginning of the course in as much detail as the instructor deems necessary for the level of students.
Chapters 6 and 7 on dc-dc converters and dc power supplies may be taken before Chaps. 3, 4, and 5 on rectifiers and voltage controllers. The author covers chapters in the order 1, 2 (introduction; power computations), 6, 7 (dc-dc converters; dc power supplies), 8 (inverters), 3, 4, 5 (rectifiers and voltage controllers), followed by coverage of selected topics in 9 (resonant converters) and 10 (drive and snubber circuits and heat sinks). Some advanced material, such as the control section in Chapter 7, may be omitted in an introductory course. The student should use all the software tools available for the solution to the equations that describe power electronics circuits. These range from calculators with built-in functions such as integration and root finding to more powerful computer software packages such as MATLAB®, Mathcad®, Maple™, Mathematica®, and others. Numerical techniques are often suggested in this text. It is up to the student to select and adapt all the readily available computer tools to the power electronics situation.
