This highly practical, applications-oriented book is focused on high power semiconductor technology in large motor drives, power supplies, power conversion, and electric utility auxiliaries. The author intends to produce a thorough guide to power basics for electronics engineers, putting the overall design process into perspective by introducing and explaining the primary and subsidiary electronic components that are required in order to build a successful power system. It contains a wealth of practical design information and hundreds of explanatory diagrams, as well as many examples of potential pitfalls in the design process. A unique aspect of the book is it's thorough coverage of the ancillary apparatus associated with power electronics, a key topic which is glossed over in other power electronics texts. The author approaches all these matters with simple, directed language and no more mathematics than necessary. BENEFIT TO THE READER: This book is intended as a reference book covering design considerations that are not obvious and are better not learned the hard way. Having it on the shelf will be the next-best-thing to having a mentor with a quarter-century of experience to guide the practitioner through power electronics design and implementation personally. The information presented is highly useful to the design engineer yet is understandable to the sales engineer, drafter or technician. *A down-to-earth approach, free of complex jargon and esoteric information. *Over 200 illustrations to clarify discussion points. *Examples of costly design goofs will provide invaluable cautionary advice.

As we increasingly use electronic devices to direct our daily lives, so grows our dependence on reliable energy sources to power them. Because modern electronic systems demand steady, efficient, reliable DC voltage sources—often at a sub-1V level—commercial AC lines, batteries, and other common resources no longer suffice. New technologies also require intricate techniques to protect against natural and manmade disasters. Still, despite its importance, practical information on this critical subject remains hard to find. Using simple, accessible language to balance coverage of theoretical and practical aspects, DC Power Supplies, Power Management and Surge Protection details the essentials of power electronics circuits applicable to low-power systems, including modern portable devices. A summary of underlying principles and essential design points, it compares academic research and industry publications and reviews DC power supply fundamentals, including linear and low-dropout regulators. Content also addresses common switching regulator topologies, exploring resonant conversion approaches. Coverage includes other important topics such as: Control aspects and control theory Digital control and control ICs used in switching regulators Power management and energy efficiency Overall power conversion stage and basic protection strategies for higher reliability Battery management and comparison of battery chemistries and charge/discharge management Surge and transient protection of circuits designed with modern semiconductors based on submicron dimension transistors This specialized design resource explores applicable fundamental elements of power sources, with numerous cited references and discussion of commercial components and manufacturers. Regardless of their previous experience level, this information will greatly aid designers, researchers, and academics who, study, design, and produce the viable new power sources needed to propel our modern electronic world.
