Historically, system implementations or circuit topologies found widespread application long before they were thoroughly analyzed. Today, however, engineers must thoroughly understand the nonlinear behavior of a system to achieve the better design, functionality, and reliability that modern applications demand. Complex Behavior of Switching Power Converters provides a systematic treatment of the procedures for observing, identifying, and diagnosing switching converter phenomena such as chaos and bifurcation. After a review of the fundamentals, the author presents some recent findings and discusses computer, laboratory, and modeling techniques for studying complex behaviors. The focus then moves to the nonlinear dynamics of various switching coverters. Here the author emphasizes circuit operation rather than mathematical abstraction, and whenever possibe, explains phenomena in terms of the physical circuit operation. Knowing when and how nonlinear phenomena occur is essential in the design and operation of power electronics. With a careful balance of theory, computer techniques, and laboratory experiments, this treatment forms a practical reference for engineers and an ideal starting point for anyone who needs a basic understanding of analyzing complex behavior in power converters.
