Overview

Seconnd Edition Enables You to Apply the Latest Technology to Design High-Frequency Power Electronic Circuits

Dedicated exclusively to resonant energy conversion, the Second Edition of Resonant Power Converters enables you to build a solid understanding of the state-of-the-art in resonant technology. You get all the tools needed to effectively analyze and design high-frequency power electronic circuits, including de-ac resonant inverters, high-frequency rectifiers, and d-dc converters.

This Second Edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, integrating the latest technology and research findings. In addition, it has been significantly expanded with new chapters examining class DE inverters and converters, quasi- and multi-resonant converters, and control of resonant converters.

Classroom-tested, Resonant Power Converters is clear, logically organized, and filled with plenty of features that enable you to quickly build your knowledge and skills, including:

  • Closed-form formulas with illustrative graphics for all converter characteristics
  • Step-by-step examples guiding you through complex analysis and design procedures
  • End-of-chapter summaries highlighting the most important concepts
  • Summary and comparison tables for at-a-glance overviews
  • Bibliographies at the end of each chapter leading you to the primary literature

In addition, each chapter ends with a set of review questions to make sure you have grasped all the key points before progressing in the text. Each chapter also includes a set of real-world resonant energy conversion problems so that you can put your new skills into practice. All these features make this text ideal for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students as well as professional engineers who need to be able to both understand and apply the latest resonant conversion technology.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A practical, systematic guide to the analysis and design of the various dc-ac resonant inverters, high-frequency rectifiers, and dc-dc resonant converters that are the building blocks of many current high- frequency energy processors. Designed both as a senior- to graduate- level text for electrical engineering courses, and as a professional reference, it provides students and engineers with a grasp of existing high-frequency technology, while acquainting them with a number of tools for the analysis and design of resonant power circuits. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher

“If I did not have a review copy, as a power-circuits designer, I would get out my credit card for this one. It deserves a place on the power-electronics bookshelf.” ( How2Power Today, 1 January 2013)

    Outstanding Book on the Subject of Power Converters

    Dr. Kazmierczuk, I enjoyed being a student of your's in graduate school. You made understanding this topic very simple, and not to mention both your book and solution manual are very well written.
