"Simulation of Power Electronic Circuits" covers a wide spectrum of topics from fundamentals of circuit simulation to a variety of power electronics applications. It enables the readers to appreciate what goes into simulation tools, how equations are assembled, how they are solved, what are the factors affecting accuracy of numerical methods, why only certain methods are useful for circuit simulation, etc. Detailed treatment of fundamentals of circuit simulation is combined with theoretical treatment of several power electronics circuits and systems, which makes the book a valuable resource for students of power electronics. The book also enables teachers of power electronics to assign meaningful simulation problems as home work assignments, something that will help the student to significantly enhance his/her understanding of the subject.
