Based on a number of breakthroughs in SiC material scienceand fabrication technology in the 1980s and 1990s, the first SiCSchottky barrier diodes (SBDs) were released as commercial productsin 2001. The SiC SBD market has grown significantly sincethat time, and SBDs are now used in a variety of power systems,particularly switch-mode power supplies and motor controls. SiC power MOSFETs entered commercial production in 2011,providing rugged, high-efficiency switches for high-frequency powersystems. In this wide-ranging book, the authors draw on theirconsiderable experience to present both an introduction to SiCmaterials, devices, and applications and an in-depth reference forscientists and engineers working in this fast-movingfield. Fundamentals of Silicon Carbide Technologycovers basic properties of SiC materials, processing technology,theory and analysis of practical devices, and an overview of themost important systems applications. Specifically includedare:A complete discussion of SiC material properties, bulk crystalgrowth, epitaxial growth, device fabrication technology, andcharacterization techniques.Device physics and operating equations for Schottky diodes, pindiodes, JBS/MPS diodes, JFETs, MOSFETs, BJTs, IGBTs, andthyristors.A survey of power electronics applications, includingswitch-mode power supplies, motor drives, power converters forelectric vehicles, and converters for renewable energysources.Coverage of special applications, including microwave devices,high-temperature electronics, and rugged sensors.Fully illustrated throughout, the text is written by recognizedexperts with over 45 years of combined experience in SiC researchand development.
This book is intended for graduate students and researchers incrystal growth, material science, and semiconductor devicetechnology. The book is also useful for design engineers,application engineers, and product managers in areas such as powersupplies, converter and inverter design, electric vehicletechnology, high-temperature electronics, sensors, and smart gridtechnology.
Updates to nearly every existing chapter keep this book at the forefront of developments in modern power systems, reflecting international standards, practices, and technologies. Additionally, three new chapters examine the environmental impact of transmission lines, real-time control of distributed generation, and distribution system characteristics and protection. New material ensures up-to-date information on highly active areas including advanced energy technologies, distributed utilities, load characterization and modeling, and power quality issues such as power system harmonics, voltage sags, and power quality monitoring.
Remaining relevant in a rapidly evolving field, Electric Power Generation, Transmission, and Distribution helps you develop and maintain safe, efficient, and economical power generation and delivery in today's dynamic and high-demand environment.
Other volumes in the set include:

Power System Stability and Control
Now in its seventh edition, Volume 2 has been fully updated in line with the 17th Edition IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671:2008) and references the material covered to the Wiring Regs throughout. The content meets the requirements of the 2330 Level 3 Certificate in Electrotechnical Technology from City & Guilds and will also prove a vital purchase for those undertaking Level 3 NVQs in Electrotechnical Services. Essential calculations which may not necessarily feature as part of the requirements of the syllabus are retained for reference by professional electrical installation engineers based in industry, or for those students wishing to progress to higher levels of study.
The book’s structure and new design make finding the required calculation easy. Key terms are explained in a glossary section and worked examples and exercises are included throughout the text to maximise accessibility of the material for the reader. A complete question and answer section is included at the back of the book to enable readers to check their understanding of the calculations presented.
Also available: Electrical Installation Calculations Volume 1, 8th edn, by Watkins & Kitcher- the basic calculations required for electrical installation work, and Level 2 study and apprenticeships.
