Power electronics can be a difficult course for students to understand and for professors to teach. Simplifying the process for both, SPICE for Power Electronics and Electric Power, Third Edition illustrates methods of integrating industry standard SPICE software for design verification and as a theoretical laboratory bench.

Based on the author Muhammad H. Rashid's considerable experience merging design content and SPICE into a power electronics course, this vastly improved and updated edition focuses on helping readers integrate the SPICE simulator with a minimum amount of time and effort. Giving users a better understanding of the operation of a power electronics circuit, the author explores the transient behavior of current and voltage waveforms for each and every circuit element at every stage. The book also includes examples of all types of power converters, as well as circuits with linear and nonlinear inductors.

New in this edition:

Student learning outcomes (SLOs) listed at the start of each chapterChanges to run on OrCAD version 9.2Added VPRINT1 and IPRINT1 commands and examplesNotes that identify important conceptsExamples illustrating EVALUE, GVALUE, ETABLE, GTABLE, ELAPLACE, GLAPLACE, EFREQ, and GFREQMathematical relations for expected outcomes, where appropriateThe Fourier series of the output voltages for rectifiers and invertersPSpice simulations of DC link inverters and AC voltage controllers with PWM control

This book demonstrates techniques of executing power conversions and ensuring the quality of the output waveforms rather than the accurate modeling of power semiconductor devices. This approach benefits students, enabling them to compare classroom results obtained with simple switch models of devices. In addition, a new chapter covers multi-level converters.

Assuming no prior knowledge of SPICE or PSpice simulation, the text provides detailed step-by-step instructions on how to draw a schematic of a circuit, execute simulations, and view or plot the output results. It also includes suggestions for laboratory experiments and design problems that can be used for student homework assignments.

" ...an excellent way to learn the basics of PSpice. It provides many examples, generally much better than the software manuals, on how each circuit element is specified and, more importantly, how the various options and special commands are used. There are also good examples that show how to model various circuit components such as a power transformer by using a combination of elements and commands. ... The material on simulation errors contains excellent advice on the little details in PSpice that are important when higher currents and voltages are being used in power electronics and other higher-power circuits. ... Electrical engineering students, especially those with a power engineering interest, will find this book very helpful for validating circuit designs. Electrical engineers will also find this book useful as a concise reference source for PSpice simulation examples for various power electronic circuit examples. It could also be used as a supplemental textbook in an undergraduate electrical engineering course, since it has problems listed at the end of each chapter and is a very good instructional resource book."
