The purpose of this book is to cover in detail the main pulse width modulation strategies and current control techniques for controlling power electronic controllers.

As well as an in-depth coverage of the reference case of a three phase AC motor fed by a voltage source inverter, this book also includes the control of both multiphase motors and multilevel inverters, the presentation of PWM over-modulation strategies and the description of a resonant current controller, and also investigates the impact of PWM strategies on EMI.
