Fundamentals of Power Electronics 2nd Edition by Erickson + Solution Manual

Fundamentals of Power Electronics by Erickson

Due to the ever-increasing power electronics technology, we see new books However Basic Books are the same books as the first day we had Reference books. One of these reference books is Fundamentals of Power Electronics by Erickson, Robert W, Maksimovic, and Dragan.

This book has over 881 pages. At first, it is a little scary, but you must keep in mind that it covers all the main subjects and some important practices.

Solution Manual Fundamentals of Power Electronics has not yet been officially released, and just a handwriting solution has been available for it, fortunately, because of good handwriting, it can be used. Perhaps its biggest drawback is the questions are not sorted out.

Fundamentals of Power Electronics, Second Edition, is an up-to-date and authoritative text and reference book on power electronics. This new edition keeps the original objective and philosophy of focusing on the fundamental principles, models, and technical requirements needed for designing practical power electronic systems while adding a wealth of new material.


Improved features of this new edition include:

  •   A new chapter on input filters, showing how to design single and multiple section filters;

Significant material revisions on average switch modelling, low-harmonic rectifiers, and the branch on AC modelling of the discontinuous conduction mode;

  •   New material on soft switching, active-clamp Snubbers, zero-voltage transition full-bridge converter, an auxiliary resonant commutated pole. Also, new sections on a design of multiple-winding magnetic and resonant inverter design;

  •   Additional appendices on Computer Simulation of Converters using averaged switch modelling, and Middlebrook’s Extra Element Theorem, including four tutorial examples; and

  •   Expanded treatment of current programmed control with complete results for primary converters, and much more.

  •   This edition includes many new examples, illustrations, and exercises to guide students and professionals through the intricacies of power electronics design.

I intend fundamentals of Power Electronics, Second Edition for use in introductory power electronics courses and related fields for both senior undergraduates and first-year graduate students interested in converter circuits and electronics, control systems, and magnetic and power systems. It will also be an invaluable reference for professionals working in power electronics, power conversion, and analogue and digital electronics.
