Summary "Power Electronics: Devices, Circuits, and Industrial Applications provides an exhaustive coverage of various power electronic devices, with emphasis on the thyristor. The characteristics of modern power semiconductor devices such as the power transistor, MOSFET, and IGBT are also discussed. Also covered in detail are controlled rectifiers, ac and dc drives, cycloconverters, brushless dc motors, microprocessor control of industrial equipment, and field oriented control of ac motors." "The book emphasizes the fundamental concepts with in-depth treatment of topics supplemented by a large number of worked examples. Written in a clear and lucid style, the book encourages self-study and motivates the student towards independent problem solving." "The book would serve as an invaluable text for undergraduate and postgraduate courses on power electronics and a useful reference for practising design engineers."--Jacket
