    This book discusses the integration of power electronics, renewable energy, and the Internet of Things (IoT) from the perspective of smart cities in a single volume. The text will be helpful for senior undergraduate, graduate students and academic researchers in diverse engineering fields including electrical, electronics and communication, and computers. The book:

    • Covers the integration of power electronics, energy harvesting, and the IoT for smart city applications
    • Discusses concepts of power electronics and the IoT in electric vehicles for smart cities
    • Examines the integration of power electronics in renewable energy for smart cities
    • Discusses important concepts of energy harvesting including solar energy harvesting, maximum power point tracking (MPPT) controllers, and switch-mode power supplies (SMPS)
    • Explores IoT connectivity technologies such as long-term evolution (LTE), narrow band NB-IoT, long-range (LoRa), Bluetooth, and ZigBee (IEEE Standard 802.15.4) for low data rate wireless personal communication applications

    The text provides the knowledge about applications, technologies, and standards of power electronics, renewable energy, and IoT for smart cities. It will serve as an ideal reference text for senior undergraduate, graduate students and academic researchers in the fields of electrical engineering, electronics and communication engineering, computer engineering, civil engineering, and environmental engineering.
