Summary and Info
Marian provides in-depth view of all dc-dc converter topologies. You should DEFINETLY know your electronic basics however, before engaging into this book. This book is perfect for anyone who has knowledge of basic electronics and a vague knowledge of power supplies. Marian covers all topologies and includes in-depth graphs, schematics/circuits. Marian goes over IGBTs, mosfets, and PWM switching circuits and feedback loops. EVen though this is a beefy book, half of it is technical math/derivatives etc...i just skip that stuff, as i'm no engineer. but the non-math parts are very comprehensive. Soft-switching is covered later on as well as voltage and current control loops. however, no PWM IC example was covered, which was kinda dissappointing...not a big deal though, since this subject was basically covered during the feedback loop section in a component-level scope. voltage and current graphs on a pulse by pulse time base are covered per topology as well.
On a side note, i think the Abraham I. Pressman/Billings 3rd edition complements this book nicely, for a different view/less math approach...
