Mirafzal publishes textbook on power electronics
Behrooz Mirafzal, professor in the Mike Wiegers Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, is the author of a textbook titled "Power Electronics in Energy Conversion Systems," recently published by McGraw Hill.
The book is for senior undergraduate students in electrical engineering and graduate students who would like to learn power electronics and its applications in motor drives, wind and solar energy systems.
"In writing this book, I have had two objectives: providing students an easy path to learn basic concepts of power electronics through many examples and illustrations, and covering applications of power electronics in both modern and traditional energy conversion systems," Mirafzal said. "This book can be adopted as a textbook for energy conversion, power electronics and advanced power electronics courses. The book assumes that students taking the first two courses will know the theory of electric circuits."
The book was released in September and can be found at a variety of major book retailers.
