      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    The field of electrical engineering has three main divisions—electronics, power, and control. Power Electronics is a discipline that combines these three divisions. Power Electronics is the application of solid state electronic switching circuits to control the flow of electrical energy. This is the technology that drives power converters, inverters, switching power supplies, and motor drives and soft starters. Since the last three decades, the field of power electronics has been evolving rapidly. Starting with conventional thyristor devices, the book traces all the advancements in the field. The book starts with an overview of power electronics systems, the principles and characteristics of thyristors, gate triggering circuits, and series and parallel operations of thyristors. Then, the book progresses to modern power semiconductor devices, phase controlled converters, dual converters, choppers, and inverters. It also covers cyclo-inverters, A.C. Regulators, resonant converters, protection, cooling and mounting of thyristors, control of A.C and D.C drivers, and thyristor applications. The book also includes nearly 397 Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs), 501 review questions, 194 solved problems, and 104 unsolved problems. The book’s companion website provides computer simulation examples of power electronics circuits.

    Dr. M.D. Singh is the former principal of Laxmi Narayan College of Technology in Bhopal. He has been involved in research and teaching in the field of power electronics, satellite communications, and TV systems for over 40 years. Dr. K.B. Khanchandani is a professor in the Department of Electronics and Telecommunication at SSGM College of Engineering in Shegaon. He has nearly two decades of research and teaching experience in the field of power electronics.

    Nice Book But..

    its A very good book for power electronics lover..Giving a lot of information clearly and in a few words; brief but comprehensive
    1- Every topic is covered
    2- topics are followed by there solved examples
    3-compact and concise explanation
    4-Easy to understand the theories
    I cant judge the book but..
    As i have gone through the PS bhimbra book too
    1- it lacks some important formulaes under the topic coverter and chopper
    2- Wave form explanation is better in BHimbra book

    Worst Book Total Waste of Money

    Please do not buy this book I have one copy, this book has many printing mistakes especially in waveforms which makes it very difficult to understand the concepts. Also the book has little or no practical significance which is very bad if you want to design something.
