About the book

Nowadays, the use of power converter technology has expanded into a countless wide range of low, medium, and high power applications due to the capability to efficiently manage electrical energy. In this regard, the high penetration of modern microprocessors capable of implementing high-performance nonlinear digital controllers and the recent advances in the development of high-speed switching power electronic devices where on-state loss and consequently switching loss of power semiconductors are significantly decreased, have contributed to increased efficiency of the new power converters. As a result, the size of power converters becomes small and the power converters with less heat generation have little environmental stress. Certain power converter topologies have been recently proposed in the literature for a variety of emerging applications. According to the state of the art, these novel converter topologies have different design criteria as well as particularities associated with the digital control system.

This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art and address recent breakthroughs over the whole range of power converter technology featuring a special emphasis on design, emerging applications, and control.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mrs. Karla Skuliber

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
