This textbook is providing the students and professors with a variety of 200 properly selected step-by step worked examples in order to assist them of understanding a power electronics course. Each chapter of this textbook consists of a number of worked examples which extend the reader’s experience in problem solving and to help develop a deeper understanding of the subject. Chapter 1 is a unique Chapter because presents in 30 Tables the most wanted information that a student and a professor needs in order to analyze different power electronics problems. This information includes key-waveforms, expressions, rms and dc values of different well known waveforms and their respective frequency spectrum (i.e. Fourier analysis). The worked examples outlined in this textbook are carefully selected to coincide with the didactic material of an introductory course in power electronics. The step-by-step examples are not examples that are used only for plugging numbers but are continuation of the power electronics theory with waveforms, relations and results for specific industrial application so that the reader to understand the specific theory and at the same time to create the appropriate feedback remarks. Moreover, in the appendix of this textbook 100 multiple choice questions are presented with their respective answers.
The theoretical results obtained in the worked examples are verified by the respective simulation ones making the results more rigid and acceptable by the reader. There are 50 simulation results out of 180 worked examples that strengthen the understanding of the examples.
The most of the worked examples are oriented towards applications to Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems, switched mode power supplies, renewable energy sources, Static VAr compensators, power semiconductor devices, passive and active filtering and motor drive systems.
This textbook, which is consisted of 200 worked examples and 100 multiple choice questions, has all the necessary material for coursework, assignments and final exam preparation.
The 200 worked examples presented in this textbook are divided into the following 12 chapters:
