Book Description

5 April 2013 1119950570 978-1119950578 1
Based on the fundamentals of electromagnetics, this clear and concise text explains basic and applied principles of transformer and inductor design for power electronic applications. It details both the theory and practice of inductors and transformers employed to filter currents, store electromagnetic energy, provide physical isolation between circuits, and perform stepping up and down of DC and AC voltages. The authors present a broad range of applications from modern power conversion systems. They provide rigorous design guidelines based on a robust methodology for inductor and transformer design.  They offer real design examples, informed by proven and working field examples. Key features include:   emphasis on high frequency design, including optimisation of the winding layout and treatment of non–sinusoidal waveforms a chapter on planar magnetic with analytical models and descriptions of the processing technologies analysis of the role of variable inductors, and their applications for power factor correction and solar power unique coverage on the measurements of inductance and transformer capacitance, as well as tests for core losses at high frequency worked examples in MATLAB, end–of–chapter problems, and an accompanying website containing solutions, a full set of instructors’ presentations, and copies of all the figures. Covering the basics of the magnetic components of power electronic converters, this book is a comprehensive reference for students and professional engineers dealing with specialised inductor and transformer design. It is especially useful for senior undergraduate and graduate students in electrical engineering and electrical energy systems, and engineers working with power supplies and energy conversion systems who want to update their knowledge on a field that has progressed considerably in recent years.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good reference in inductor/transformer 17 Sep 2013
By Nio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I cannot agree with the first comment on the font of the equation. This comment misled me for a while. However, I came across this book in ECCE and found the book very readable. The material is friendly to students/beginners. I wish there can be more examples as Mclyman's book. But overally it is a 4 or 5 star book.
4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Book 14 Feb 2014
By K Cha - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a very good book, clear explaination, and well written. The book is well organized. A lot of clear derivation of formula. I have several other power electronic and transformer books, and I find this to be the best book for me (I am a user, and I am not trying to advertise this book). Authors also included several Mathlab codes for simulating transformer and SMPS.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could not Read Formulaes 6 Aug 2013
By Ron Goodwin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is impossible to read the Formulaes making the book worthless --I even tried the aA to try enlarge it
