INTRODUCTION
Role of Power Electronic Converters Power electronics is an enabling technology that achieves conversion of electric power from one form to another utilizing a combination of high-power semiconductor devices and passive components—chiefly transformers, inductors, and capacitors. The input and output may be ac or dc and may differ in magnitude and frequency. The conversion sometimes involves multiple stages with two or more converters connected in a cascade. The end goals of a power electronic converter are to achieve high efficiency of conversion, minimize size and weight, and achieve desired regulation of the output. Figure 22-1 shows power electronic co…
