Power Electronics Converters Modeling and Control teaches the reader how to analyze and model the behavior of converters and so to improve their design and control. Dealing with a set of confirmed algorithms specifically developed for use with power converters, this text is in two parts: models and control methods. The first is a detailed exposition of the most usual power converter models:
· switched and averaged models;
· small/large-signal models; and
· time/frequency models.
The second focuses on three groups of control methods:
· linear control approaches normally associated with power converters;
· resonant controllers because of their significance in grid-connected applications; and
· nonlinear control methods including feedback linearization, stabilizing, passivity-based, and variable-structure control.
Extensive case-study illustration and end-of-chapter exercises reinforce the study material.
Power Electronics Converters Modeling and Control addresses the needs of graduate students interested in power electronics, providing a balanced understanding of theoretical ideas coupled with pragmatic tools based on control engineering practice in the field. Academics teaching power electronics will find this an attractive course text and the practical points make the book useful for self tuition by engineers and other practitioners wishing to bring their knowledge up to date.
