Very good survey, but not exactly what I was looking for 17 April 2009
By Craig Garvin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a great survey of power electronics for someone with a modest electrical engineering background. It presents terminology, hardware, circuits and analysis in an approachable and well organized way. After reading it, someone with little prior experience can have a clear sense of what the field is about, what devices are available, and what technology is appropriate for specific power and voltage levels.

That said, as another reviewer pointed out, the book is a little light on math and detailed circuit topology. Erickson and Maksimovic was a much better fit for my needs.

Breadth and not depth 26 Feb 2012
By Nate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book covers a lot of material related to power electronics, but does not go into much detail. The topics include AC-to-DC, DC-to-DC, and DC-to-AC conversion, ZVS/ZCS schemes, lots of information related to devices (MOSFET and diode physics) and magnetics, and motor drive and utility applications. The material on AC-to-DC conversion, DC-to-AC conversion, motor drive applications, and utility drive applications is not covered in a typical graduate level course. Based on this it would have been beneficial to go into more detail on isolated and non-isolated DC-to-DC converters by including more waveforms, discussing alternate forms of a given topology (for example the Cuk converter with and without a coupling inductor), discuss state space averaging in more detail (the line-to-output relationship was neglected), and include Vorperian's circuit model for the PWM switch. Overall this is a reasonable book, but I believe that Erickson's book is much better (Fundamentals of Power Electronics).

bible 21 Sep 2011
By gert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is the best power electronics book in terms of fundementals. However there are other books which can be more detailed in mathematics or circuit types. An engineer who is specialised in power electronics needs to know what the author provide in this book. As a result read this book as much as you can and revisit it when you need to fresh your knowledge.

Had What I needed. 16 Aug 2007
By Julian Lynn Stockley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Although a little light on full converter schematics, this textbook contained excellent descriptions of converter building blocks and semiconductor device physics. It is excellent that it came with a simulator program too.
It's a clasical 9 July 2013

Excellent book, discusses the basic Componenet power electronics, as well as the most common circuits and applications. Harmonic analyzes are shown. I highly recommend it
