Written as a true textbook for the undergraduate electrical
engineering student with strong pedagogical support, complete with
numerous examples, problems, chapter summaries, illustrations, and
an extensive bibliography -- many competing "texts" are
little more than reference books in the guise of a textbook, and lack
the learning aids necessary to serve as an undergraduate text.
Integrates PSpice circuit simulation throughout the discussion
of each topic in the text, and simulation is treated as an integral
part of the analysis and design of power electronic circuits.
Includes a chapter on power computations, providing a sound
foundation in the computational skills essential in the analysis of
power electronic circuits.
Throughout, numerous worked examples are included, illustrating
concepts and principles and reinforcing the material by showing the
theory at work.
Presents an array of design examples and problems, keeping
up with current trends in the field and helping to satisfy a portion
of the ABET design requirements for accreditation.
