Provides a step-by-step method for the development of a virtual interactive power electronics laboratory. The book is suitable for undergraduates and graduates for their laboratory course and projects in power electronics. It is equally suitable for professional engineers in the power electronics industry. The reader will learn to develop interactive virtual power electronics laboratory and perform simulations of their own, as well as any given power electronic converter design using SIMULINK with advanced system model and circuit component level model.
Author: Narayanaswamy P R Iyer received his M.E. degree and Ph.D. degree, both in the area of Power Electronics and Drives, from the University of Technology Sydney, NSW and Curtin University of Technology, Perth, WA, Australia respectively. He received his B.Sc.(Engg)(Electrical) and M.Sc.(Engg)(Power Systems) degrees from University of Kerala and University of Madras, respectively. He worked as a part-time faculty with the department of Electrical Engineering, UNSW, Kensington, NSW and UTS, NSW. Earlier, he had worked as a full time faculty in the Department of Electrical Engineering, GEC, Trichur, Kerala, VEC, Vellore and RREC, Chennai. He was a research fellow in the Faculty of Engineering, PEMC group, the University of Nottingham, England from July 2012 to March 2014. Presently, he is an Electrical and Electronics Consultant managing his own consultancy organization. He has more than two decades of experience in the modelling of electrical and electronic circuits, power electronic converters and electric drives using various software packages like MATLAB/SIMULINK, PSIM, PSCAD, PSPICE, MICROCAP etc., and has published several papers in this area in leading conferences and journals. He has several discoveries to his credit, such as "Three Phase Clipped Sinusoid PWM Inverter", "Single Programmable and Dual Programmable Rectifier Using Three Phase Matrix Converter Topology", and a patent/IP on "A Combined PWM Sine Wave AC to AC and AC to DC Converter."
