The main aims of power electronic converter systems (PECs) are to control, convert, and condition electrical power flow, from one form to another, through the use of solid-state electronics. This book outlines R&D into the scientific modelling, experimentation and remedial measures for advancing the reliability, availability, system robustness, and maintainability of PECs at different levels of complexity.

Drawing on the experience of an international team of experts, this book covers an introduction to reliability engineering and the reliability of PECs; lifetime prognosis; and robustness validation. It also covers applications including low- and high-power motor drives, wind turbine systems, photovoltaic systems, uninterruptible power supply systems, energy harvesting, power supplies for computers, high-power converters, and automotive applications.

Reliability of Power Electronic Converter Systems will be of particular interest to professionals in power electronics, and the application sectors, and practicing engineers specializing in the development and application to power electronic converters and systems.
