For this revision of their undergraduate text, Guru and Hiziroglu have incorporated 11 years of developments in the field since the book was first published. The second edition also incorporates suggestions from students and lecturers who have used the first edition seeking to make it the most suitable text for junior- and senior-level courses in electric machines. This edition features new and improved problems and examples, designed to complement the author's overall goal of encouraging intuitive reasoning rather than rote memorization of the material. Additional information in the chapter on the conversion of energy, now includes: analysis of magnetically coupled coils, induced emf in a coil rotating in a uniform magnetic field, induced emf in a coil rotating in a time-varying magnetic field and the concept of the revolving field. All problems and examples have been rigorously tested using Mathcad.show more
