Book Cover PSpice Simulation of Power Electronics Circuits is the title of a book by Raymond S. Ramshaw and Derek C. Schuurman which is currently published by Springer (formerly by Chapman & Hall). The aim of this book is to provide instruction in the use of a computer program called PSpice that can simulate power electronic circuits. This book was conceived as a result of research performed at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

The student version of PSpice is available here. There are also a number of open source Spice-based simulators such as Ngspice and online browser-based simulators like Circuit Lab, but the examples in the book have not been tested with any of these.
