The final prices may differ from the prices shown due to specifics of VAT rules About this Textbook This textbook provides an in-depth treatment of the physics of power semiconductor devices that are commonly used by the power electronics industry. Drawing upon decades of industry and teaching experience and using numerous examples and illustrative applications, the author discusses in detail the various device performance attributes that allow practicing engineers to develop energy-efficient products.
Coverage includes all types of power rectifiers and transistors and analytical models for explaining the operation of all power semiconductor devices are developed and demonstrated in each section of the book. Throughout the book, emphasis is placed on deriving simple analytical expressions that describe the underlying physics and enable representation of the device electrical characteristics. This treatment is invaluable for teaching a course on power devices because it allows the operating principles and concepts to be conveyed with quantitative analysis.
The treatment focuses on silicon devices but includes the unique attributes and design requirements for emerging silicon carbide devices. This new edition also includes a chapter on the impact of power semiconductor devices on energy savings and reduction of carbon emissions. About the authors Jayant Baliga is an internationally recognized expert on power semiconductor devices. He spent 15 years at the General Electric Research and Development Center, Schenectady, NY, leading their power device effort and was bestowed the highest scientific rank of Coolidge Fellow.
He has been granted U. The IGBT is extensively used in the consumer, industrial, lighting, transportation, medical, renewable energy, and other sectors of the economy. It has enabled enormous reduction of gasoline and electrical energy use, resulting in huge cost savings to consumers, and reduction of world-wide carbon dioxide emissions. A detailed report on the applications and social impact of the IGBT is available.
