Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book serves as a tool for any engineer who wants to learn about circuits, electrical machines and drives, power electronics, and power systems basics

From time to time, engineers find they need to brush up on certain fundamentals within electrical engineering. This clear and concise book is the ideal learning tool for them to quickly learn the basics or develop an understanding of newer topics.

Fundamentals of Electric Power Engineering: From Electromagnetics to Power Systems helps nonelectrical engineers amass power system information quickly by imparting tools and trade tricks for remembering basic concepts and grasping new developments. Created to provide more in-depth knowledge of fundamentals—rather than a broad range of applications only—this comprehensive and up-to-date book:

  • Covers topics such as circuits, electrical machines and drives, power electronics, and power system basics as well as new generation technologies
  • Allows nonelectrical engineers to build their electrical knowledge quickly
  • Includes exercises with worked solutions to assist readers in grasping concepts found in the book
  • Contains “in-depth” side bars throughout which pique the reader’s curiosity

Fundamentals of Electric Power Engineering is an ideal refresher course for those involved in this interdisciplinary branch.

Synopsis:

At the basis of many sectors of engineering, electrical engineering deals with electricity phenomena involved in the transfer of energy and power. Professionals requiring a refresher course in this interdisciplinary branch need look no further than Fundamentals of Electric Power Engineering, which imparts tools and trade tricks to remembering basic concepts and grasping new developments. Even established engineers must supplement their careers with an invigorated knowledge base, and this comprehensive resource helps non-electrical engineers amass power system information quickly.
