Table of Contents

Introduction and review of basic theory. Transformers. DC machines. Induction machines. Synchronous machines. Transient behaviour. Power-electronic/electrical machine drives. Mathematical and computer simulation of machine systems. Appendices.

13 lit. refs., 100 illus.


Containing approximately 200 problems (100 worked), the text covers a wide range of topics concerning electrical machines, placing particular emphasis upon electrical-machine drive applications. The theory is concisely reviewed and focuses on features common to all machine types. The problems are arranged in order of increasing levels of complexity and discussions of the solutions are included where appropriate to illustrate the engineering implications. This second edition includes an important new chapter on mathematical and computer simulation of machine systems and revised discussions of unbalanced operation, permanent-magnet machines and universal motors. New worked examples and tutorial problems have also been added.
