For one-semester, sophomore-level, courses in Electrical Power and/or Controls, or Machines and/or Transformers in an EET program.Broad in scope, yet deep in content, this text offers unique, single-volume coverage of machines, transformers, controls, and electrical power distribution. The focus throughout is on topics that engineers and technologists today-and in the future-will encounter in the workplace-e.g., the principles of operation and application of motors, motor controls, power quality, power electronics, motor circuit design, programmable logic controllers, etc. The text includes much more material than could be covered in a single semester-allowing a great deal of flexibility in course design.
