This book addresses topics specific to the application of power electronics to telecom systems. It follows the power flow from national grid down to the last low-voltage high current requirement of a processor. Auxiliary equipment requirements, such as uninterruptible power supplies, storage energy systems, or charging systems, are explained, along with peculiar classification or suggestions for usage. The presentation of each telecom power system is completed with a large number of practical examples to reinforce new material.

Professor Dorin O. Neacșu received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in electronics from the Technical University of Iasi, Iasi, Romania, in 1988 and 1994, respectively, and the M.Sc. degree in engineering management from the Gordon Institute for Leadership, Tufts University, Medford, MA, USA in 2005. He was involved with TAGCM-SUT, Iasi, from 1988 to 1990, and with the faculty at Department of Electronics, Technical University of Iasi, between 1990 and 1999. During this time, he held visiting positions at Université du Quebec a Trois Rivières, Canada, and General Motors/Delphi, Indianapolis, USA. Following 1999, he was involved with the US industry as an Electrical Engineer, Consultant, Product Manager, and Project Manager, and with U.S. academic activities at the University of New Orleans, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and United Technologies Research Center.
Since 2012, he is an Associate Professor with Technical University of Iasi, Romania and a repeat Visiting Associate Professor with Northeastern University, Boston, MA, USA. He has maintained a continuous stream of R&D publications since 1992 within various professional organizations around the world, has organized eight professional education seminars (tutorials) at IEEE conferences, and holds three US patents. He has published a book entitled "Switching Power Converters – Medium and High Power", (Boca Raton, FL, USA: CRC Press/Taylor and Francis, 2006) with a second edition from December 2013. Other ISBN books or college textbooks have been published in USA, Canada, and Romania. Dr. Dorin O. Neacșu received the 2015 "Constantin Budeanu" Award of the Romanian Academy of Sciences, the highest Romanian research recognition in electrical engineering. He is an Associate Editor of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON POWER ELECTRONICS and IEEE IES MAGAZINE, a Reviewer for the IEEE Transactions and Conferences, and a Member of various IEEE committees.
