Publisher Comments:

Designed to provide readers with a thorough introduction to Alternating Current electrical characteristics and circuit construction, AC THEORY, 3rd edition explores the complexities of this more advanced circuit theory by building on the basics established in direct current theory. The book begins with an overview of the primary components of AC circuits, such as resistors, inductors, and capacitors, and then gradually introduces new, more complicated topics like applying AC principles in power generation and generators, parallel and combination circuits, troubleshooting and evaluation of circuit conditions, and more. With the same reader-friendly approach and practical examples that made previous editions so successful, this updated 3rd edition uses the most current technologies and trends to provide an ideal resource for anyone seeking a fundamental knowledge of AC theory. Check out our app, DEWALT Mobile Pro™. This free app is a construction calculator with integrated reference materials and access to hundreds of additional calculations as add-ons.

Synopsis:

This fundamental alternating current (AC) theory book, now in its second edition, offers a user-friendly approach and practical examples to keep industry professionals up-to-date. Designed to provide a thorough introduction to AC theory from its production, to its uses and circuitry; AC Theory, 2E uses the basics of direct current theory to explain the various facets of AC theory. The book begins by covering the primary components of AC circuits, such as resistors, inductors, and capacitors. The chapters that follow build upon the basic principles learned in these chapters, gradually introducing increasingly complex topics such as applying AC principles in power generation and generators, parallel and combination circuits, and more. With updated sidebars that provide a real-world context for the topics covered, users will develop strong connections between theory and applications, preparing them for work in the electrical field.
