Electrical Power and Controls
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.

Back cover copy
This broadly-based book covers both motors and power transmission, and starts with the fundamentals of energy and power systems. It progresses though power quality transformers, motors/generators, power electronics, control devices/circuits, building electrical systems, and programmable logic controllers. The second edition includes: Extensive use of figures and photos to reinforce concepts discussed in the text Additional review questions and problems at the end of most chapters New case studies on societal and global issues relating to engineering and technology Additional material to reflect changes in the industry
