This book on power electronics spans a wide knowledge base such as power devices, drives, circuit topologies, magnetics, system modeling, control configurations, digital processing, thermal and reliability aspects. The book has been broadly divided into two types of topics viz. (a) circuit-oriented aspects and (b) system-oriented aspects. The first seven chapters deal with circuit-oriented aspects of power electronics systems and the remaining chapters deal with system-oriented aspects like controls and reliability.
