Power electronics is the study of switching semiconductor components in order to control the flow of electrical energy. On this basis, the concepts of source categories (voltage or current) and their potential reversibilities make it possible to apply a methodology for the synthesis of various kinds of converters.
In this volume, the author provides an overview of electronic power converters (DC/DC,DC/AC, AC/DC and AC/AC), their use in industrial applications and, in particular, their application in AC drives.
In addition to a detailed analysis of vector PWM for three-phase inverters and their impact on the DC power bus, which has been overlooked in previous works on the subject, this book also provides an introduction to multi-level converters.
Finally, the reader is provided with a case study involving full-dimensioning of an industrial variable-speed drive. This case study draws on the different aspects discussed in the book.
