The 1st chapter describes the processes used in the manufacture of power semiconductors and the construction and characteristics of the power semiconductors currently available.
Chapters 2 to 5 cover devices which are used in conjunction with power semiconductors. Chapter 2 introduces the methods and components for removing heat generated within the power semiconductor, a vital requirement for effective operation.
Chapter 3 describes low power devices, including those classified BS smart power, which are used to control the operation of power semiconductors.
Chapter 4 introduces the techniques and components necessary to minimize radio frequency interference generated by power electronic circuits; with the tightening of European and world regulations, this is clearly an important consideration.
Chapter 5 describes components and circuits used to protect power components from malfunction, such as caused by overcurrent and overvoltage.
Chapters 6 to 13 provide detailed information on the arrangements and design of the various types of power semiconductor circuits. Because there are a large number of different types of such circuits, this whole field is first surveyed in Chapter 6, to give the student a unified picture.
Chapter 7 describes the most basic type of power circuit, that used for simple static switching. This is taken further in Chapter 8 to controlling the value of the a.c. line voltage.
Chapter 9 extends the voltage control concept to include rectification so that the a.c. is controlled to give a variable d.c. voltage.
Although similar in concept to ax. line control and rectification, the next chapter describes a completely different application, the use of power electronics to vary the frequency of an a.c. supply without first going through d.c. These are also referred to as cyclo converters.
Chapters 11, 12, and 13 are related since in these the power semiconductors switches operate from a d.c. supply and need to be forced commutated.
Chapter 11 classifies the various commutation systems which are popularly used, and Chapters 12 and 13 describe two prime application areas, those of voltage control and of frequency changing.
Finally, Chapter 14 describes some of the most common applications of power semiconductor components and circuits, introduced in earlier chapters of the book.
This includes power supplies, electrical machine control, heating and lighting, and automobile control applications.
To them, and to the many other power electronic engineers, who have worked to extend our knowledge in this valuable area, this book is gratefully dedicated.
