Design of Three-phase AC Power Electronics Converters
DESIGN OF THREE-PHASE AC POWER ELECTRONICS CONVERTERS
Comprehensive resource on design of power electronics converters for three-phase AC applications
Design of Three-phase AC Power Electronics Converters contains a systematic discussion of the three-phase AC converter design considering various electrical, thermal, and mechanical subsystems and functions. Focusing on establishing converter components and subsystems models needed for the design, the text demonstrates example designs for these subsystems and for the whole three-phase AC converters considering interactions among subsystems. The design methods apply to different applications and topologies.
The text presents the basics of the three-phase AC converter, its design, and the goal and organization of the book, focusing on the characteristics and models important to the converter design for components commonly used in three-phase AC converters. The authors present the design of subsystems, including passive rectifiers, inverters and active rectifiers, electromagnetic interference (EMI) filters, thermal management system, control and auxiliaries, mechanical system, and application considerations, and discuss design optimization, which presents methodology to achieve optimal design results for three-phase AC converters.
Specific sample topics covered in Design of Three-phase AC Power Electronics Converters include:
- Models and characteristics for devices most commonly used in three-phase converters, including conventional Si devices, and emerging SiC and GaN devices
