"Power Electronics deals with the conditioning of electrical power to a form that is more economical, more efficient, and more reliable for driving a load. The discipline is now becoming vital to industry and its application is spreading by leaps and bounds with the development of new and more powerful devices. Therefore, learning the concepts of Power Electronics will always be helpful for an Electrical Engineering student. A web-based approach is followed for developing simulations, which should be helpful for a user to learn some basic and important concepts of Power Electronics. These Java-based applets are developed to understand various important concepts like converters, inverters, resonant converters, etc. and efforts are put to cover both the ideal and non-ideal characteristics. The applets are user-interactive, user-friendly animated simulations. These applets supplement the material a user learns from a conventional textbook"--Abstract, page iii.
