Datta, Samir Kumar, Power Electronics and Controls, Reston Publishing Co., 1985. 196p.
The book examines the properties of power semiconductor devices and their application in controlled rectifiers, inverters, and cycloconverters. It includes a complete analysis of controlled rectifier, chopper, inverter and cycloconverter circuits, as well as an analysis of solid-state control of dc and ac motors. Topics include: a review of power electronics applications; power diodes; thyristors; phase-controlled rectifiers; ac line voltage control; dc choppers and dc motor control; line commutated inverter; dc link inverter; control of dc and ac motors; ac-to-ac converter - cycloconverter; thyristor trigger circuits; and a bibliography.

This book is concerned with the design procedure for power circuitry of power converters and is based on a great deal of experience in the consulting field. The aim has been to explain principles both of analysis and design rather than to attempt the impossible task of discussing every type of converter circuit . Topics include circuits with switches and diodes, power semiconductor switches, ac voltage controllers, controlled rectifiers, dc-to-dc converters, inverters, and ac-to-ac converters. An acquaintance with transient circuit analysis, Fourier analysis, electric machine theory, and elementary control system theory is needed by the reader. The lead author, Shashi B.
