This textbook introduces modern power electronics, specifically the application of semiconductor devices to the control and conversion of electrical power. The wide availability of solid state power switches has led to numerous new applications, from the relatively low power control of domestic equipment, to the high power control of industrial processes and the very high power control along transmission lines. Assuming only the minimum mathematical and electronic background, this book gives a comprehensive introduction to the entire range of devices and their applications. It provides the material for a year-long course in power electronics and includes numerous examples and exercises.
