Power Association Re-releases Classic Magnetics Text

In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PSMA) has announced a special offer on Nathan Grossner's classic treatise, Transformers for Electronic Circuits—Second Edition. Originally priced at $95, this important text now may be purchased directly from PSMA for $75. PSMA members are offered an additional $20 discount. The book may be ordered directly online at www.psma.com or www.ejbloom.com.

This text is a complete, one-stop guide to transformer and inductor design and applications for everyone who designs, builds or uses power magnetics components. Throughout this book, the author combines analysis and synthesis, and all theory is related to the solution of real-world problems.

Sections of the text provide guidance in the use of transformers and inductors in power electronics and in digital and pulse circuits. Also included is design information about other forms of high-frequency magnetics such as transmission-line transformers, hybrid transformers, ferroresonant transformers, flyback converter magnetics and inductors used in switchmode power converter designs.

Special attention is given in the book to the proper control of dielectric stress, corona and thermal factors in high-voltage magnetics designs. Modeling methods for magnetic parts also are included and treated in some detail. This book is an essential reference book for any engineer involved in the design and development of modern-day magnetic components.

According to Joe Horzepa, managing director of PSMA, "Grossner's book should be an essential part of every power supply designer's technical library and, thanks to PSMA, it is once again available after being out of print for several years. Now, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of our organization, we're lowering the price as a thank you to the industry we serve."
