From the Back Cover
A practical guide to state-of-the-art power supply design Switching Power Supply Design, Second Edition Nowhere else can you find, in one book, all the information you need to design a switching power supply. And no other book on the subject is as practical, yet mathematically sufficient, without being unnecessarily academic. Using a tutorial, how-to-do-it approach, Pressman first explains basic principles and why thigs are done as they are. With a knowledge of basic principles, the engineer can easily cope with new design requrements and evaluate alternative design decisions. The topics covered represent all those areas where a design decision hasto be made in commencing a new design. These include: Topology Descriptions-A quantitative description of the roughly 15 commonly used topologies. Maximum current and voltage stress on power transistors for specified input voltage-output powers are described. The discussion permits selection of an optimum topology for the specified input-output voltages, output powers, and the selection of the power transistors; High-Frequency Magnetics Fundamentals-Ferrite core hysteresis, coil skin effect, and proximity effect losses; Transformer Design-Derivation of equation for transformer core selection for available output power as a function of frequency, flux density, iron and bobbin area, and topology; novel charts derived from the equations, permitting core selection at a glance; core, coil, total transformer loss, and temperature rise calculations; transformer design examples in major topologies; DC Current Biased Inductor Design-Design of inductors carrying DC bias currents using ferrite, MPP, Koolmu, and powered iron cores; Magnetic Amplifier, Snubber Designs, and Resonant Converters; Feedbak Look Stabilization; Critical Polaroid Waveforms in Major Topologies. This second edition adds chapters on the current hottest topics in the field; power factor corrections, high-frequency ballsts for flourescent lamps, and low-input voltage power supplies for laptop computers.

Chapman & Hall
Dimensions (in inches): 1.40 x 10.19 x 7.28
This six-part book fully and completely explains the principles, models, and technical requirements of power electronics at a higher level than is currently published. The book moves logically from theory to application-specific material, covering in one source what readers are currently finding in two or more texts. Bob Erickson creates the context in Parts 1 and 2 of his book covering converter circuits and electronics, semiconductor devices, analytical assessment techniques, converter topologies, and AC-modeling of DC converters. Later chapters cover theory, design, and application techniques for control systems, magnetics, converters, inverters, and filters. Each chapter includes homework problems, step-by-step design techniques, and real-world examples.
