Book Review:
Power Electronics Handbook

Category:
Engineering

Brief Description:
Power electronics is a broad subject that deals with every aspect of electronic systems and devices. Any computer, machine, controller, game, etc., that is available today is dependent on the power electronics in those systems and devices to operate. Power electronics systems deal with the process of converting electrical power from one form to another. Power Electronics Handbook is specifically designed for the professional engineer in industry and includes contributions of over 60 authors primarily from industry.


My Review:
The Editor and Contributors (mostly from Universities) carefully selected and organized power electronics in 35 Chapters that cover modern electronic devices (except IGCT); rectifiers; converters; inverters; gate drives; control methods for power converters, power supplies; capacitor charging associated electronics, photovoltaic and wind related electronics; HVDC transmission; drive types; motor drives; sensorless vector, direct-torque-control drives, fuzzy-logic, and artificial-intelligence-based drives; automotive applications of power electronics; power quality; active filters; computer simulation of power electronics and motor drives; and packaging and smart power systems. Many informative Figures in this Handbook saved many thousands of words. Each relatively small topic/paragraph has pertinent reference(s) for further enhancement or studies, which makes this handbook very valuable for students, engineers, educators, enthusiasts, etc. Additional useful areas that might have been added are, for example: Hybrid filters (a combination of active and passive filters), acronym & abbreviation section (to avoid multiple spellouts in the same book), etc.

My Rating:
5/5

How about stubmitting whole books in pdf?

Becase there are some free ones out there.
I have *LOTS* of electronic related E-Books. I would be willing to contribute if there was a sufficiently sized place to dump them. I have sent them to others before but they always get bounced due to filling up their webspace.

Most of what I have ranges from 0.5M to 10M in size (*.pdf) with several that are as large as 20-50M

All total over 2GB

Are they copyrighted at all? If they are all free to publish then I could host them for the members. The server has 2 GB free no problems.
Most of them are publically available (perhaps no longer available today but they were at one time)

I would not contribute any copyrighted books. Would be glad to help if you get it setup

Hello Funny NYPD

The maximum file limit for PDF's is 10MB so there should be no problem with the size of it.

What kind of internet connection are you on? If you are on a slow one like 56k then the page will probably timeout. If this is the case you could email it to me.. Let me know as we would love to host your book..

Hello, ElectroMaster,
I have a 6M bandwith internet connection.
Tried again this morning, no success. Change the name to a short format won't help either.
Let me know how can I send it to you by email.

all good. I have uploaded the file to your post. I have also fixed the issue with file uploads so if you need to upload a newer version or any other file you should have no problem.

I would also like to take this time to thank you for your contribution to ETO, I briefly reviewed the book and think it is an excellent piece of content and valuable to our members. Thank you.
