# Book

After many years of preparation, my book on model predictive control (MPC) for power electronics has become available in 2016. Consisting of two main parts, the first part provides a detailed review of three-phase power electronics, electrical machines, carrier-based pulse width modulation, optimized pulse patterns, state-of-the art converter control methods and the principle of MPC.

The second part is an in-depth treatment of MPC methods that fully exploit the hardware capability of high-power converters. These control methods combine the fast control responses of deadbeat control with the optimal steady-state performance of optimized pulse patterns by resolving the antagonism between the two.

For more details on the book, please refer to the product webpage of Wiley. There, you also find the necessary details to order your own copy.
