LabVIEW for Electric Circuits, Machines, Drives, and Laboratories with CDROM (National Instruments Virtual Instrumentation)by Nesimi Ertugrul
Synopses & Reviews
The first interactive, LabVIEW-based guide to electrical system analysis and operation.
For the first time, you can master electric circuits, machines, devices, and power electronics, hands on-without the use of expensive equipment. Using custom-written LabVIEW Virtual Instruments, Nesimi Ertugrul walks you through every key topic associated with the analysis and operation of a wide range of AC and DC circuits, electrical machines, and drives-including high-voltage/current/power applications covered in no other book. Ertugrul presents detailed background on every topic, along with full VI panels, complete laboratory practices, hardware information, wiring diagrams, printed circuit layouts, and self-study questions: everything you need to achieve true mastery.
Complete version of LabView 6 is on our website: #LINK Contains a complete copy of LabVIEW 6 Evaluation Version, plus all Virtual Instrumentations (VIs) presented in the book, enabling readers to test diverse operating conditions for a wide range of circuits.

Book News Annotation:
Ertugrul (University of Adelaide) introduces the computer simulation of DC and AC electric circuits, electromechanical devices, and electric motor and drive systems. The textbook provides instructions for testing periodic waveforms, voltage and currents, magnetization characteristics, losses in DC motors, diode conduction, and stepper motors, to name a few. The CD-ROM contains virtual instruments and an evaluation version of LabVIEW 6.
