Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

Assuming readers already have a grasp of direct current (DC) circuit theory, this textbook builds on the theory in order to introduce the concepts of capacitance and inductance as the relate to alternating current (AC) theory. It also presents a range of circuit analysis tools. Six sections cover AC and DC generators; inductance and capacitance in AC circuits; combining resistance, inductance and capacitance; and applications.

Synopsis:

This book begins where DC Theory leaves off, building on that foundation of learning the fundamentals. Beginning with a review of the methods and techniques of DC theory, this book adds the concepts of capacitance and inductance as they relate to alternating current (AC) theory and features a host of circuit analysis tools that will build on concepts already learned. An introduction to vectors and complex numbers is followed by an immersion into AC concepts as they compare to DC theory. Polyphase circuits, AC and DC generators, and inductance and capacitance in AC circuits are subsequently explored. The last and largest part of the book discusses how to analyze all the possible combination of RLC circuits including series, parallel, and combination circuits.
