About Of The Book :

Power electronics is normally offered as a technical elective. It is an application-oriented and interdisciplinary course that requires a background in mathematics, electrical circuits, control systems, analog and digital electronics, microprocessors, electric power, and electrical machines. Understanding the operation of a power electronics circuit requires a clear knowledge of the transient behavior of current and voltage waveforms for every circuit element at every instant of time. These features make power electronics a difficult course for students to understand and for professors to teach. A laboratory helps in understanding power electronics and its control interfacing circuits. The development of a power electronics laboratory is relatively expensive compared to other courses in a power electronics–electronic power (EE) curriculum. Power electronics are playing a key role in industrial power control. The Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (EAC/ABET) requirements specify the computer integration and design content in the EE curriculum. To be competitive, a power electronics course should integrate design content of approximately 50% and extensive use of computer-aided analysis. The student version of OrCAD PSpice, which is available free to students, is ideal for classroom use and assignments requiring computer-aided simulation and analysis. Without any additional resources and lecture time, PSpice can also be integrated into power electronics. A probe is a graphics postprocessor in PSpice and is very useful in plotting the results of the simulation. Especially with the capability of arithmetic operation, it can be used to plot impedance, power, and so on. Once the students gain experience in simulating on PSpice, they appreciate the advantages of the.PROBE command. A probe is an option of PSpice, but it comes with the student version. Running Probe does not require a math coprocessor. Students can also opt for the normal printer output or printer plotting. The prints and plots are very helpful in relating students’ theoretical understanding and making judgments on the merits of a circuit and its characteristics. The probe is like a theoretical oscilloscope with special features to perform arithmetic operations. It can be used as a laboratory bench to view the waveforms of current, voltage, power, power factor, and so on, with Fourier analysis giving the total harmonic distortion (THD) of any waveform. The capability of Probe, along with other data representation features such as Table, Value, Function, Polynomial, Laplace, Param, and Step, makes PSpice a versatile simulation tool for EE courses. Students can design power electronics circuits, use the PSpice simulator to verify the design and make necessary design modifications. In the absence of a dedicated power electronics laboratory, the laboratory assignments could be design problems to be simulated and verified by PSpice.
