Wu (electrical and computer engineering, Ryerson U., Toronto) presents the latest technology in high-power converters and medium voltage drives, along with a complete analysis of various converter topologies, modulation techniques, practical drive configurations, and advanced control schemes. He begins with an overview of high- power drives, including market analysis, drive system requirements, industrial applications and semi-conductor devices. He then examines various multipulse rectifiers, multilevel voltage source converters, PWM current source converters, and high-power AC drives. The text includes practical problems, simulations, experiments and over 250 illustrations.
