Publisher Comments:

A practical blend of theory, diagrams, graphs, drawings, and photos combine in this book to assist readers in developing a complete understanding of all types of electric motors, generators, and alternators. All About Motors comprehensively examines such concepts as magnetic and inductive theory, characteristics of various types of motors, and the speed control of AC and DC motors that provide the necessary background for a thorough understanding of rotating equipment. Basic concepts of rotation are skillfully applied to the complex theories of rotor phase angles and their effect on torque so technicians learn effective service and troubleshooting techniques as well as motor operations. The knowledge gained will give students a foundation to develop into journeymen who can be counted on to successfully handle all aspects of the electrical industry.

The way rotating fields and countervoltage are presented finaly make sense. The magnetic theory and how comutation takes place at the neutral postion also is helpful. Their graphs are a big 1st, I don't believe that I have seen any presented like that in my other referances.
