Description: Since 1998 when the 1 st edition of this book was published, new trends in power electronics have developed, such as the greatly increased focus on PWM rectifiers and multilevel inverters, or the widespread application of power converters in electric and hybrid vehicles and renewable energy systems. Novel and improved semiconductor power switches, such as IGCTs, have appeared on the market. The issue of electromagnetic interference (EMI) generated in power electronic systems has increased in importance in the context of the revolution in wireless communications. The Second edition of this book provides comprehensive and straightforward coverage of modern power electronics together with an extensive body of examples, exercises, computer assignments, and simulations making it highly suitable as a textbook.
