Book Description :

Welcome to Power Electronics Basics! This is a nonfiction science book which contains various topics on fundamentals of power electronics. Power electronics is a branch of electronics concerned with the use of electronic devices and associated components in the conversion, regulation, and conditioning of electric power. Converters control the key aspects of electrical power like voltage, current, frequency, and the basic form of AC or DC. Power electronics is able to convert and control of electric power. Power electronics systems are widely used for various applications which contribute in global industrial and social activity. Power electronics have significant impact on daily lives of people, from cellphones to pacemakers, utilities to autos. Power electronics also allow for the variance of electric motor drive speeds, reducing the amount of energy consumed by making processes more efficient. By converting the Direct Current energy produced by solar panels into AC used in the commercial electrical grid, power electronics allow solar energy to be used. Despite variable wind conditions, wind energy must also be processed and sent into a grid at a steady frequency. Other forms of alternative energy, like thermal, hydro, and nuclear, rely on the capabilities of power electronics to supply electricity efficiently. Applications of power electronics include temperature and lighting control, solar power and renewable energy, medical applications, computer networks and data centers, military, electric power networks and transportation. This book covers various topics on Thyristor, Circuit of Thyristor, Triac, IGBT, Diac, UJT, SMPS, Transient Suppression Devices, Solid State Relay, Single and Three Phase Rectification.
