Although they are some of the main components in the design of power electronic converters, the design of inductors and transformers is often still a trial-and-error process due to a long working-in time for these components. Inductors and Transformers for Power Electronics takes the guesswork out of the design and testing of these systems and provides a broad overview of all aspects of design. Inductors and Transformers for Power Electronics uses classical methods and numerical tools such as the finite element method to provide an overview of the basics and technological aspects of design. The authors present a fast approximation method useful in the early design as well as a more detailed analysis. They address design aspects such as the magnetic core and winding, eddy currents, insulation, thermal design, parasitic effects, and measurements. The text contains suggestions for improving designs in specific cases, models of thermal behavior with various levels of complexity, and several loss and thermal measurement techniques. This book offers in a single reference a concise representation of the large body of literature on the subject and supplies tools that designers desperately need to improve the accuracy and performance of their designs by eliminating trial-and-error.

Not all artists want to create static, unilluminated works to hang on a wall, and with Electronics for Artists, they don't have to. With today's modern technology-LEDs, servo motors, motion sensors, speakers, and more-artwork can incorporate elements of light, sound, and motion for dramatic effects. Author and educator Simon Quellen Field has developed a primer for creative individuals looking for new ways to express themselves though electronically enhanced art. Following step-by-step examples of basic circuitry and programming, even a novice reader will develop the skills necessary to enhance their works. Demonstration projects then give artists a chance to build and program a more efficient light dimmer, randomly flashing LEDs using an integrated circuit, a controlled servo motor, and more. The book even includes art projects to try, include a bouquet of glowing flowers; an LED metronome; a talking computer; Cecil, a sensile robot; and Rover, a simple wheeled robot. A variety of artistic works created by Field's students and based on these open-ended lessons are also included to provide creative sparks for the readers. For those interested in programming their circuits, Field explores the basics of Energia, a free software package, and provides simple programs to create flashing light patterns, computer controlled motors, and LCD text displays.
