Power Electronics by K. P. Akole
With tremendous advancement in Power Electronics since last few decades a number of semiconductor devices have come up in power electronics field. This rapid development made significant change in the field of electrical engineering. The field of electrical engineering is generally segmented into three major areas Electronics, Power and Control. The function of power electronics is to process and control the electrical energy by supplying voltage and current in a form that is optimally suited to the load. Power Electronics plays a vital role in many domestic and industrial appliances. Electrical machines are controlled by power electronics. Various conventional controls and relays are replaced by electronic system consisting of power electronic circuits.
Power electronics is popular for technical as well as economical reasons. Electrical power generation, transformation, transmission and distribution are in A.C. but almost all terminal equipments used in industries, laboratories, agriculture and domestic require D.C. power. In order to satisfy these requirements, easy conversion of power is essential. Power electronics provides solution for all such requirements.
