Abstract:

A study of theoretical techniques applicable to the analysis and design of modern power processing equipment is presented. An organizational structure is developed which defines a meaningful partitioning of a power system into component blocks at various levels. Considerations relevant to the various levels of this structure, both at the block diagram and circuit level, are treated. These areas include discussions of device models, dc power output stages and basic power converter limitations. A survey of current computer programs applicable to the analysis and design electrical equipment is presented. Brief treatments of some mathematical techniques, including Hilbert transforms, describing functions, phase-plane analysis and stability criteria are given. The above theoretical tools are applied to the analysis of a practical power processor, and predicted characteristics compared with those observed in the laboratory. Bibliographies are provided for three areas power processors, mathematical methods and computer aided design.
