Book Description

10 May 2012
This book is the most comprehensive study available of the theoretical and practical aspects of controlling and measuring Electromagnetic Interference in switching power supplies, including input filter instability considerations. The new edition is thoroughly revised with six completely new chapters, while the existing EMI chapters are expanded to include many more step-by-step numerical examples and key derivations and EMI mitigation techniques. New topics cover the length and breadth of modern switching power conversion techniques, lucidly explained in simple but thorough terms, now with uniquely detailed "wall-reference charts" providing easy access to even complex topics. It provides step-by-step and iterative approach for calculating high-frequency losses in forward converter transformers, including Proximity losses based on Dowell's equations. It includes thorough, yet uniquely simple design flow-chart for building DC-DC converters and their magnetic components under typical wide-input supply conditions. It offers step-by-step, solved examples for stabilizing control loops of all three major topologies, using either transconductance or conventional operational amplifiers, and either current-mode or voltage-mode control.

More About the Author

Sanjaya is the author of six, well-known technical books, including the world's only book on Power over Ethernet. His unique perspective in power electronics is the result of an equally unique journey which started in Mumbai, formerly Bombay, long ago, making its way through several countries, gathering hands-on professional experience quietly and steadily for over two decades. Finally, the best of the cost-driven Far East, combined with high-tech German engineering and American inventiveness, were distilled into a lucid tome. Sanjaya initiated the first unified approach to switching topologies, breaking them down into three fundamental cells, then uniting them through the far-reaching concept of current ripple ratio. If this was akin to various similar approaches in physics, that was no coincidence. Sanjaya holds advanced degrees in physics from acclaimed schools such as St. Stephen's College Delhi, IIT Bombay and Northwestern University Illinois. He was ranked 17th in the prestigious National Talent Search of India. Professionally, he has worked in well-known companies such as Freescale Semiconductor, Siemens AG, Power Integrations, Fairchild Semi and Broadcom Corp. He spent five years at National Semiconductor (now Texas Instruments) in Santa Clara, California, where he has to his credit innumerable articles, widely-cited App Notes, patents, datasheets, training material and webinars. He was also National's only guest columnist in history, besides the late Bob Pease, who authored an inspiring book in analog electronics. Sanjaya lives in Fremont, California with his ever-supportive wife Disha and their two little Maltipoos.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy update 12 Jun 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought the second edition of this book- already owning the first edition. I commented the first edition was possibly the best book I had read on switching power supplies but could have done with covering more topologies.

Well Sanjaya must of read this and other comments, as not only were other topologies detailed but the section on feedback loop analysis was increased and made so clear that I can finally understand Laplace transforms as applied to power supply stability. The additional circuits offer a wealth real world examples.

Even if you own the first edition the second edition is worth buying.

I can only hope his next edition of "Power Supply Optimistation" has been updated to include even more usefull information than the first. It is not often an author adds significant new material that makes the "upgrade" worthwhile (as my experience of keith Billings revised editions proves).

Sanjayas books are worth buying even if you own and liked the earlier editions as (in my one experience to date) content is significantly increased with new content added and thought given to what could have been made clearer in the previous edition.

In my opinion Sanjaya and Basso are the premier league authors on all things power.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very practical book for real world power supplies 22 Dec 2012
By E. Lipiansky - Published on Amazon.com
This book is an incredible asset for the power supply design community. It not only provides rules of thumb, like almost every engineering design book does, but also expains the physical or engineering reasons for doing so.
Sanjaya presents a unified approach of the three basic types of converters, and summarizes all the results in easy
reference pages throughout the book. The initial chapter provides a better than excellent refresher, perhaps somewhat new material for beginners. He covers in great detail the voltage and current relationships in inductors and capacitors. Although these might seem trivial for some readers, it provides a clear understanding of what the waveforms on those two circuit elemens are. He addresses the topic of EMI with great intuition and leaving aside complicated electromagnetic equations, which are sometime intractables by most readers. The book is thorough and complete. I would be very surprised if after reading it from cover-to-cover any DC/DC converter related issue would remain untouched.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Books on the subject. 28 Oct 2013
By danwatts@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are a power supply designer or need to understand how they work, buy this book! Highly informative and well written. Very understandable. I have read many books on power conversion in my 30 years in the field and this book is one of the best out there if not the best in my opinion. The author, Sanjaya Maniktala, other books are equally good but this is the one to start with. If your budget only allows you to purchase one book on power conversion, you can't go wrong buying this one.

The book helps me understand the basic of switching power supply specially how it
interacts with each stages. Also, I've learned to look for possible design issues.
Great book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book on power supply design 15 Oct 2013

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent reference book for power supply designers. It has the best section on EMI filter design I have ever seen.
5.0 out of 5 stars Very thorough treatment of switching power supplies 2 Aug 2014
By N.E. Falconer - Published on Amazon.com
This is a book that is as practical as it is theoretical. It is filled with tips and facts that get you up to speed quickly (well, relatively quickly) and help to keep you out of trouble. At the same time, it addresses the theory with a refreshing approach that leads directly to deeper understanding. It should be on the reference bookshelf of every designer of switching power supplies.
