Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Discover the fundamental direct current (DC) principles and applications, as well as the theories that underlie those principles - all in an effort to build a strong foundation in electrical technology! Written with the student electrician in mind, DC Theory, 3E uses a reader-friendly approach and begins with the basics of electricity and DC circuits, including how properties of materials are categorized within conductors, semiconductors, and insulators. Coverage gradually progresses to tackle more complex topics, like DC parallel circuits, DC combination circuits, magnetism and generators. With an emphasis on safety throughout, this book provides a valuable combination of both information and safe practice, providing students with the skills and knowledge necessary for future success in the electrical field. 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:

Learn the direct current (DC) principles and applications, as well as the underlying theories needed for a strong foundation in electrical technology, critical to the success of today?s electrical technicians. With clear explanations and a conversational approach, DC Theory, 2E begins with the fundamentals of electricity and DC circuits, including how properties of materials are categorized within conductors, semiconductors, and insulators. In-depth coverage of Ohm's law and its relation to voltage, current, resistance, and power are also presented, followed by the theory and practical applications of electrical components connected in series. Coverage then builds on these fundamentals to tackle more complex topics, like DC parallel circuits, DC combination circuits, and magnetism and generators. With an emphasis on safety throughout, this book provides both information and safe practice, making it an ideal resource for building the knowledge needed to excel in the industry today.
