The AC/DC Book Of Knowledge

Steve Roberts published his brand new AC/DC Book of Knowledge - get your free PDF copy below.

Our Technical Director at RECOM is proud to share his extensive electronics knowledge with students and engineers from around the world.

Although RECOM is a renowned manufacturer of DC/DC converters, their portfolio also covers a wide range of AC/DC products from 1W up to 960W. While knowledge accumulated in the development of these AC/DC products is sometimes similar to that of DC/DC products, it can be quite different in some other points.

This standalone RECOM AC/DC Book of Knowledge has been released as a companion volume to the DC/DC Book of Knowledge. The author of both volumes, Steve Roberts, states, “the DC/DC Book of Knowledge has been so well received in the industrial and educational communities, that I felt obliged to write a companion AC/DC book. The two books together now cover many of the fundamental topics of power supply development.”

The AC/DC book has 12 technical chapters covering linear AC/DC supplies, Apparent, Reactive and Active Power, AC theory, Active and Passive AC component selection, PFC techniques, and many more. These topics have been chosen so that they do not overlap with the chapters in the DC/DC book so both books reinforce each other rather than being repetitive.

Since the original publication in December 2014, more than 15,000 copies of the RECOM DC/DC Book of Knowledge have been distributed globally.
