This lart, 1,108-page book is the second extended edition of the popular book published by Academic Press in 2006. This new edition is inspired by the continuous development of power electronic systems, which—as noted by Prof. Bose—are the basis of the era of the third revolution of the 21st century and of the development of our civilization in general. This is due to the observed encroachment of power electronics, not only in industrial systems but also in such important areas of our lives as renewable and distributed energy (smart grids) and the fight against global warming. Each chapter in the book begins with an abstract and a clear introduction and ends with a constructive conclusion. Moreover, each chapter contains a list of publications and—what should be emphasized—many of them were updated. The book also contains a list of abbreviations, a list of variables and symbols, and an index. Power Electronics and Motor Drives: Advances and Trends is a valuable tool for graduate researchers, practicing engineers, and scientists working in the areas of power electronics and controlled drives as well as renewable and distributed energy systems. It provides the needed technical background for each subject, and therefore it can also be recommended for senior undergraduates and master’s level students of electrical engineering and power system studies interested in modern power electronics energy systems. I strongly believe that this new edition of Prof. Bose’s stateof-the-art book will be as successful as the previous eight books bearing the author's name.
