Power Electronics and Applications #01: Advanced DC/DC Convertersby Fang Lin Luo
Synopses & Reviews
DC/DC conversion techniques have undergone rapid development in recent decades. With the pioneering work of these authors, DC/DC converters have now moved into their sixth generation. This book offers a concise, practical presentation of DC/DC converters, summarizing the spectrum of conversion tecnologies and presentingmany new ideas and more than 100 new topologies. Nowhere else in the literature are DC/DC converters so logically sorted and systematically introduced, and nowhere else can readers find detailed information on prototype topologies that represent a major contribution to modern power engineering. More than 320 figures, 60 tables, and 500 formulae facilitate understand and provide precise data.
Book News Annotation:
Luo and Ye (electrical engineering, Nanyang Technological University) categorize existing prototypes of DC/DC converters into six generations according to their characteristics and development sequence, and provide 320 diagrams of 100 converter topologies. The 18 chapters progress through mathematical formulae for the analysis and calculation of voltage lift converters, super lift converters, multiple quadrant operation converters, switched component converters, soft-switching converters, synchronous rectifier converters, and multiple energy-storing elements resonant converters. Several of the converters were designed by the authors themselves, known as Luo-converters. The closing chapters discuss DC voltage sources, the gating signal generator, and electromagnetic interference.
