Power drives are used for induction motor control, uninterruptible power supplies, and in electrical vehicles. The increasing penetration of power drives makes their reliability, robustness, and early diagnosis a central point of attention especially in planning, designing, and financing. This book explores fault diagnosis of inverter drives in order to prevent malfunction and inefficient operation.

Fault Diagnosis for Robust Inverter Power Drives focuses on early diagnosis, prognosis, and intrinsic reliability of inverter power drives and their applications. Topics include material degradation, materials, semiconductors, inverter topologies, and early diagnosis as well as fault tolerant software strategies.

This work is highly relevant to researchers, power electronics professionals, and system designers in aerospace, hybrid and electrical cars, and power systems
