    Concern for reliable power supply and energy-efficient system design has led to usage of power electronics-based systems, including efficient electric power conversion and power semiconductor devices. This book provides integration of complete fundamental theory, design, simulation and application of power electronics, and drives covering up-to-date subject components. It contains twenty-one chapters arranged in four sections on power semiconductor devices, basic power electronic converters, advanced power electronics converters, power supplies, electrical drives and advanced applications. Aimed at senior undergraduate and graduate students in electrical engineering and power electronics including related professionals, this book

    • Includes electrical drives such as DC motor, AC motor, special motor, high performance motor drives, solar, electrical/hybrid vehicle and fuel cell drives

    • Reviews advances in renewable energy technologies (wind, PV, hybrid power systems) and their integration

    • Explores topics like distributed generation, microgrid, and wireless power transfer system

    • Includes simulation examples using MATLAB®/Simulink and over four hundred solved, unsolved and review problems
