Introduction to Power Engineering/Analog circuits Book

In summary, the individual is looking for a detailed introductory text on the theory and design of power supplies and regulators, specifically focusing on buck converters and linear regulators. They have already searched on Wikipedia but would like a resource with more in-depth information. They mention some textbook recommendations and suggest looking at manufacturer websites for application notes. The individual also expresses interest in building their own linear power supply and asks for reference material for this. They clarify if the reference material would be for a schematic similar to an LM7085 or a simpler design.

I am looking for a good introductory text that will walk me through the theory and design of power supplies and regulators. I am really looking to understand things like buck converters and linear regulators. I've looked around wikipedia and while the material is helpful I'd like something that goes into a little bit more detail and will take the topics further into power engineering.

Thanks in advance!

Well i was actually more interested in building my own linear power supply rather than purchasing one. So based on that do you have any reference material.

Are you meaning to build one in the detail of the equivalent schematic for an LM7085:

Or a simpler one like this:
