Convertisseurs et electronique de puissance : Commande, description, mise en oeuvre - Applications avec Labview

Cet ouvrage dresse un huge landscape de l'électronique de puissance : facets fondamentaux et résultats expérimentaux, équipements et matériels, outils de notion et mise en oeuvre en milieu industriel. C'est dans cet esprit résolument pragmatique que sont ainsi présentés : les systèmes électroniques de commande, créateurs et transmetteurs, analogique et numérique ; les différents kinds de convertisseurs, leurs principes de fonctionnement et leurs comportements dans les stipulations idéales puis réelles ; leurs performances, grâce notamment à l. a. souplesse des systèmes de commande, mais aussi leurs fragilités (en particulier en régime transitoire) ; les outils logiciels (SIMULINK, PSpice et LabVIEW) à même d'accroître l. a. connaissance de leurs comportements et l. a. mise au element de systèmes plus performants.
