Preface to Power Electronics and Motor Drives Advances and Trends


I am presenting this novel book on advances and trends in power electronics and motor drives to the professional community with the expectation that it will be given the same wide and enthusiastic acceptance by practicing engineers, R&D professionals, university professors

And even graduate students that my other books in this area have. Unlike the traditional books available in the area of power electronics, this book has a unique presentation format that makes it convenient for group presentations that use Microsoft’s PowerPoint software.

In fact, a disk is included that has a PowerPoint file on it that is ready for presentation with the core figures. Presentations can also be organized using just selected portions of the book.

As you know, power electronics and motor drive technology are very complex and multidisciplinary, and it has gone through a dynamic evolution in recent years.

Power electronics engineers and researchers are having a lot of difficulties keeping pace with the rapid advancements in this technology.

This book can be looked at as a text for a refresher or continuing education course for those who need a quick review of recent technological advancements.

Of course, for completeness of the subject, the core technology is described in each chapter. A special feature of the book is that many examples of recent industrial applications have been included to make the subject interesting.

Another novel feature is that a separate chapter has been devoted to the discussion of typical questions and answers.

During the last 40+ years of my career in the industrial and academic environment, I have accumulated vast amounts of experience in the area of power electronics and motor drives.

Besides my books, technical publications, and U.S. patents, I have given tutorials, invited presentations, and keynote addresses in different countries around the world at many IEEE as well as non-IEEE conferences.

A mission in my life has been to promote power electronics globally. I hope that I have been at least partially successful.

I pursued the advancement of power electronics technology aggressively from its beginning and have tried to present my knowledge and experience in the whole subject for the benefit of the professional community.

However, the book should not be considered as a first or second course in power electronics. The reader should have a good background in the subject to assimilate the content of the book.

Each page contains one or more figures or a bulleted chart with explanations given below it just like a tutorial presentation. The bulk of the figures are taken from my personal presentation materials from tutorials, invited seminars, and class notes.

A considerable amount of material is also taken from my other publications, including the published books. Unlike a traditional text, the emphasis is on physical explanation rather than mathematical analysis.

Of course, exceptions have been made where it is absolutely necessary. After a description of the core material in each chapter, the relevant advances and trends are given from my own experience and perspective.

For further digging into the subject, selected references have been included at the end of each chapter. I have not seen a similar book in the literature. With its novel and unique presentation format, I describe it as a 21st-century book on power electronics.

If the opportunity arises, I will create a complete video course on the entire subject in the near future. The content of the book has been organized to cover practically the entire field of power electronics.

Chapter 1 gives a broad introduction and perspective on the importance and applications of the technology.

Chapter 2 describes modern power semiconductor devices that are viable in industrial applications.

Chapter 3 deals with the classical power electronics, including phase-controlled converters and cyclo converters, which are still very important today.

Chapter 4 describes voltage-fed converters, which are the most important type of converter in use today and will remain so tomorrow. The chapter includes a discussion of different PWM techniques, static VAR compensators, and active filters.

Chapter 5 describes current-fed converters, which have been used in relatively large power applications.

Chapter 6 describes the different types of ac machines for variable-frequency drives.

Chapter 7 deals with control and estimation techniques for induction motor drives, whereas Chapter 8 deals with control and estimation techniques for synchronous motor drives.

Chapter 9 covers simulation and digital control in power electronics, including modern microcomputers and DSPs. The content of this chapter is somewhat new and very important.

Chapter 10 describes fuzzy logic principles and their applications, and Chapter 11 provides comprehensive coverage of artificial neural networks and their applications.

Finally, Chapter 12 poses some selected questions and their answers which are typical after any tutorial presentation.

This book could not have been possible without active contributions from several of my professional colleagues, graduate students, and visiting scholars in my laboratory.

The most important contribution came from Lu Qiwei, a graduate student of China University of Mining and Technology (CUMT), Beijing, China, who devoted a significant amount of time to prepare a large amount of the artwork for this book.

Professor Joao Pinto of the Federal University of Mato Grosso do Sul (UFMS) in Brazil made significant contributions to the book in that he prepared the demonstration programs in fuzzy logic and neural network applications.

I also acknowledge the help of his graduate students. Dr. Wang Cong of CUMT provided help in the preparation of the book. Dr. Kaushik Rajashekara of Rolls-Royce gave me a lot of ideas for the book and worked hard in checking the manuscript.

Dr. Hirofumi Akagi of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, gave me valuable advice. Dr. Marcelo Simoes of the Colorado School of Mines and Ajit Chattopadhyay of Bengal Engineering and Science University, India, also deserve thanks for their help.

Finally, I would like to thank my graduate students and visiting scholars for their outstanding work, which made the book possible. Some of them are Drs.

Marcelo Simoes; Jason Lai of Virginia Tech; Luiz da Silva of Federal University of Itajuba, Brazil; Gilberto Sousa of Federal University of Espirito Santo, Brazil; Wang Cong; Jin Zhao of Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China; M. H. Kim of Yeungnam College of Science & Technology, Korea; and Nitin Patel of GM Advanced Technology Vehicles.

In my opinion, they are the best scholars in the world it is often said that great graduate students and visiting scholars make the professor great.

I am also thankful to the University of Tennessee for providing me with opportunities to write this book.

Finally, I acknowledge the immense patience and sacrifice of my wife Arati during the preparation of the book during the past 2 years.
