Power Electronics Handbook – Muhammad H. Rashid – 3rd Edition


For junior or senior undergraduate in Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
This text covers the basics of emerging areas in and a broad range of topics such as power , conversion methods, analysis and techniques, and applications.

Its unique approach covers the characteristics of semiconductor devices first, then discusses the applications of these devices for power conversions. Four main applications are included: flexible ac transmissions (FACTs), static switches, , dc drives, and ac drives.
