This book is a comprehensive textbook in the areas of electrical, electronics, and telecommunications engineering. It consists of 17 chapters and two appendices. Some of the topics covered include: buck PWM DC-DC converters; boost PWM DC-DC converters; buck-boost-PWM DC-DC converters; half-bridge and full-bridge converters; push-pull PWM DC-DC converters; open-loop small-signal characteristics of boost converters for CCM; current-mode control of boost converters; silicon and silicon carbide power diodes; and soft-switching DC-DC converters. Appendix A is an introduction to SPICE and Appendix B provides an introduction to MATLAB. Answers to problems and the index are also included at the end of the book. The book is recommended for senior undergraduate and graduate students but also for practicing engineers working with switch-mode power supplies, within applications such as computers, telecommunications, industrial electronic systems, automobile electronics, medical equipment, radars, and aerospace power technology.
