Synopses & Reviews
Reflecting new technologies and the latest practices in the field, ELECTRICAL TRANSFORMERS AND ROTATING MACHINES, 3E delivers thorough coverage of theory and practical applications of electrical machines. It begins with a study of magnetism and magnetic induction, single-phase isolation transformers, current transformers, and autotransformers. A unit on three-phase power covers basic connections and calculations before proceeding into transformers. In addition, numerous experiments reinforce theory with hands-on application. A unique combination of transformers and motors makes this book an excellent resource for electrical students and practitioners alike.
Now in its Second Edition, this book is an excellent resource for electrical students and professionals who need a comprehensive explanation of theory and practical applications of electrical machines. The book includes nine experiments enabling readers to reinforce the theory discussed earlier. Students begin with a study of magnetism and magnetic induction, single-phase isolation transformers, current transformers, and autotransformers. A unit on three-phase power refreshes the student with basic three-phase connections and calculations before proceeding into three-phase transformers.
About the Author
Stephen L. Herman--both an electrician and a teacher for more than 30 years--authored numerous popular textbooks on the subjects of electricity and mathematics. Now retired, Mr. Herman spent two decades as lead instructor for the Electrical Technology Curriculum at Lee College in Baytown, Texas, where he received an Excellence in Education Award from the Halliburton Education Foundation. He also taught at Randolph Community College in Asheboro, North Carolina, for nine years, and helped establish an electrical curriculum for Northeast Texas Community College in Mount Pleasant, Texas. Additional publications include DELMAR'S STANDARD TEXTBOOK OF ELECTRICITY, INDUSTRIAL MOTOR CONTROLS, UNDERSTANDING MOTOR CONTROLS, ELECTRIC MOTOR CONTROL, ELECTRONICS FOR ELECTRICIANS, ELECTRICAL WIRING INDUSTRIAL, ALTERNATING CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS, DIRECT CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS, ELECTRICAL STUDIES FOR TRADES, ELECTRICAL PRINCIPLES, ELECTRICAL TRANSFORMERS AND ROTATING MACHINES, EXPERIMENTS IN ELECTRICITY FOR USE WITH LAB VOLT, THE COMPLETE LABORATORY MANUAL FOR ELECTRICITY, and PRACTICAL PROBLEMS IN MATHEMATICS FOR ELECTRICIANS.
