Power Electronics Handbook – Muhammad H. Rashid – 2nd Edition


is an area of ​​rapid growth in terms of research and , uses modern electronic technology to convert electrical energy from one form to another, such as ac-dc, dc-dc, dc-ac and ac-ac with an output magnitude and frequency.

It has many applications in our everyday life, such as air conditioners, electric cars, sub-way trains, frequency inverters, renewable energy sources and for computers. This book covers all aspects of switching devices, converter circuit topologies, control techniques, analysis methods and some examples of their applications. Designed to appeal to a new generation of engineering professionals, has four new chapters covering renewable energy, power transmission, energy storage as well as an introduction to distributed technology and cogeneration (DCG) , including gas turbines, generator sets, microturbines, wind turbines, variable speed generators, photovoltaics and fuel , has been gaining for quite some time.

With this book the reader should be able to provide the leadership in technical design in electronic power design projects assigned and direct the design of the concept to production which implies the scope and significant . It contains 45 chapters covering all aspects of power and their applications. It has three new chapters that now includes coverage of energy sources, energy storage and Transmission of Electrical Energy. It includes contributions from over fifty major experts spanning twelve different countries.
