    This undergraduate textbook features strong pedagogical support, complete with numerous examples, illustrations, problems, clearly stated objectives, and summaries. MATLAB examples are used extensively throughout the book, making math simpler. MATLAB is also used as a tool to enhance understanding of converter operation modes without the need for complex mathematical analysis. The emphasis is not on derivation of formulas but on their interpretation, implication, and application. The book integrates PSPICE circuit simulation throughout the discussion of each topic, and simulation is treated as an integral part of the analysis and design of power electronic circuits.
