An introduction to the topic of power systems modelling has been given. There are many aspects of power systems that make their modelling different from other analogue systems; however, constructing a small -signal model provides fast analysis of the behaviour, subject to certain limitations as having been discussed. The efficiency of a power system is determined by many parasitic components not just in the core converter but many times also in the external components. An insight into the nonideal behaviours and lossy mechanisms of capacitors and inductors has been given. Battery modelling is an area of active research driven by the plethora of low power wireless applications and electric vehicle adoption, and the reader is referred to the references for further reading on this topic.
