This book provides a functional, engineering approach to the subject, emphasising components, basic analysis of circuits and problem solving techniques based on simple approximations. Written primarily as an undergraduate textbook it is also a useful reference and refresher text for professional engineers. Features include: Coverage of semiconductor components, passive components (such as capacitors, coils, transformers, fuses and resistors), power circuits and filters; Sections dealing with mathematical methods, asynchronous motors, reliability and electrical noise; A chapter detailing the basic building blocks for control electronics; Description of classical thyristor circuits as well as new circuits not yet in common use, together with an evaluation of the advantages and disadvantages of differing circuits; Numerous worked examples and problems (with solutions) together with appendices, which include mathematics adapted for power electronics usage.This book provides a functional, engineering approach to the subject, emphasising components, basic analysis of circuits and problem solving techniques based on simple approximations.
