Design of Three-phase AC Power Electronics Converters
Design of Three-phase AC Power Electronics Converters contains a systematic discussion of the three-phase AC converter design considering various converter electrical, thermal, and mechanical subsystems and functions. Focusing on establishing converter components and subsystems models needed for the design, the text demonstrates example designs for these subsystems and for whole three-phase AC converters considering interactions among subsystems. The design methods apply to different applications and topologies.
GaN Power Devices and Applications textbook Edited by Alex Lidow, Ph.D. Since the 2019 release of the 3rd edition textbook, GaN Transistors for Efficient Power Conversion, published by J. Wiley, there has been rapid adoption of GaN transistors and integrated circuits into a myriad of end-use applications such as robots, drones, AI computers, AC adapters, autonomous vehicles, and even vacuum cleaners. This book, GaN Power Devices and Applications, provides an update on gallium nitride technology and applications by leading experts.
The book covers thyristor controlled drives, single phase semi and fully controlled converters connected to separately excited and D.C series motors – continuous current operation – output voltage and current wave-forms – speed and torque expressions – speed – torque characteristics - problems on converter fed d.c motors.
