Preface to Modern Power Electronics and AC Drives eBook


It is with pride, excitement and a lot of expectations. I am presenting this book to the professional community of the world. As you know, power electronics and motor drives constitute a complex and interdisciplinary subject that has gone through spectacular evolution in the last three decades.

Recently, artificial intelligence (AD) techniques are extending the frontier of this technology. It is without any doubt that the power electronics will play a dominant role in the 21st century in industrial, commercial, residential, aerospace.

utility and military applications with an emphasis on energy-saving and solving environmental pollution problems. I have been in the power electronics area for more than forty years (since the technology was born) through my career pursuits in academia and industry, and have followed the technology evolution very aggressively.

In the past, I contributed a number of books (authored and edited) in the power electronics area of which Power Electronics and AC Drives (Prentice Hall- 1986) is most important. It was taken as an advanced text in many universities in the world.

This new book can be considered as significant updating and expansion of the previous book where ! have tried to embed practically whatever knowledge I have in power electronics and ac drives.

It contains the subject from A-to-Z, i.e., power semiconductor devices, electrical machines, differ-ent classes of converters, induction and synchronous motor drives with control and estimation. and Al techniques (expert system, fuzzy logic, and neural networks).

In essence, I have tried to incorporate practically all the aspects of state-of-the-art technology of power electronics and motor drives in the book.

The content of the book is essentially based on my lecture notes of one senior course and three graduate courses, which I have developed and taught at the University of Tennessee during the last fourteen years.

It will be my deep satisfaction if I can see that the book is being considered as a text in more universities than the previous one. The universities, which are already following my previous book, can now safely accept this new book.

The content of the book can be summarized as follows:

Chapter I contains a description of different types of power semiconductor devices including the recent IGCT, where IGBT device has been emphasized.

Chapter 2 describes induction and synchronous machine theories in somewhat detail from the viewpoint of variable frequency drive applications, which include dynamic d-q machine models. Complex space vectors have been introduced but avoided in much of the text because, in the author's opinion, they tend to frighten most of the students. A switched reluctance machine has been included for completeness.

Chapters 3 and 4 discuss the classical phase-controlled thyristor converters and cyclo converters, respectively. For completeness, high frequency link converters are included in Chapter 4.

Chapter 5 covers voltage-fed converters and PWM techniques where space vector PWM has been emphasized. More recent topics, such as soft-switching, power factor compensation, multi-level converters, static VAR compensators, and active filters are included.

Chapter 6 deals with current-fed converters that include PWM converters. Chapter 6 describes slip power recovery drives with wound-rotor induction motors, and mainly consist of Kramer and Scherbius drives.

Chapter 8 covers the control and estimation of cage type induction motor drives which includes discussion on speed sensorless control and drive self-commissioning. Induction motor drive is a dominant theme in the book.

Chapter 9 describes the control and estimation of synchronous machine drives that include sensorless control and a brief description of switched reluctance motor drive.

Chapter 10 gives a brief description of the expert system and its applications. In the author's opinion, ES has a lot of potentialities but has been practically ignored by the power electronics community.

Chapter 11 deals with fuzzy logic and its applications, and finally, Chapter 12 gives a description of the neural network and its applications. In the author's opinion, ANN technology will have a large impact on the power electronics area in the future.

A set of questions has been formulated for different chapters which will be forwarded to readers on request [[email protected]).
