From the Back Cover
Since its publication in 1989, each edition has strived to presenta cohesive presentation of power electronics fundamentals forapplications and design in the power range where there is demand inindustry for power electronic engineers. A CD-ROM has been added tothis edition, which readers will find useful in the exploration ofpower electronics and use of this text. The CD-ROM contains:
* A large number of new end-of-chapter problems with varyingdegrees of difficulty.
* PSpice(r) -based simulation examples to illustrate basic conceptsand help in the design of converters. PSpice(r) is an idealsimulation tool for this purpose.
* A newly developed magnetic component design program. This programis extremely useful in showing design trade-offs, for example, theinfluence of switching frequency on the size of inductors andtransformers.
* PowerPoint-based slides for all chapters that help summarizetopics throughout the text.
The text also explores industrial and commercial applications, aswell as practical aspects of power electronic converter design,such as snubber circuits, drive circuits, circuit layout, and heatsinks. Please visit http://www.wiley.com/college/mohan foradditional information.
