Well my heavily used first edition copy of this book has now been happily replaced by this wonderful state-of-the-art second edition update. The first edition book has served me so well as one of the most helpful reference collection books to allow me to bridge between theory and actual practice. Now arrives the second edition with corrections, updates and additions that seek to make this tool even more helpful. Has it delivered? Oh yes! The first big improvement is its size. It is slightly taller but significantly wider, which has allowed for a great improvement in formatting. The flow of reading the second edition is fantastic. Where needed mathematical details have been elaborated and are clearer and easier to understand. New additions to switching topologies have been added to the already vast collection.A subject of this complexity and variability is not easy to distill in a manner which can be easily understood, digested and made practical for the modern day student or established engineer who wishes to design and simulate power converters using SPICE. Mr. Basso very eloquently and most thoroughly covers a huge swath of switch-mode topologies that is easy to understand for both students entering into power conversion and practicing engineers who need a refresher. I have tried other books, either they are over the top theoretical with long drawn out mathematics that leave one hanging in limbo between theory and reality, or they are general and provide very few tools on how to "do it yourself". As a prerequisite to following this book you will need an understanding of algebra, calculus and basic SPICE simulation skills. The book provides you with a link to download many of the SPICE and MathCAD example files in the book as well as demo simulation software.
