Preface to Power Electronics Devices Circuits and Applications
The fourth edition of Power Electronics is meant as a textbook for a course on power electronics/static power converters for junior or senior undergraduate students in electrical and electronic engineering.
It also can be used as a textbook for graduate students and as a reference for practicing engineers involved within the design and applications of power electronics. The prerequisites are courses on basic electronics and basic electrical circuits.
The content of Power Electronics is beyond the scope of a one-semester course. The time allocated to a course on power electronics during a typical undergraduate curriculum is generally just one semester.
Power electronics has already advanced to the purpose where it’s difficult to hide the whole subject during a one-semester course.
For an undergraduate course, Chapters 1 to 11 should be capable provide an honest background on power electronics. Chapters 12 to 17 might be left for other courses or included during a graduate course.
Table P.1 shows suggested topics for a one-semester course on “Power Electronics” and Table P.2 for a one-semester course on “Power Electronics and Motor Drives.”
