Electrical Networks focuses on the principles, methodologies, practices, and approaches involved in electrical networks, including transformers, polarity, Zobel networks, and Fourier series. The book first elaborates on d.c. currents and voltages and varying currents and voltages. Discussions focus on voltage and current sources, energy and power, voltage and current division, star-delta transformation, direction and polarity, periodical quantities, capacitors and inductors, and energy stored in capacitors and inductors. The manuscript then takes a look at some properties of networks and magnetic coupled inductors. Topics include equivalent circuits for magnetic coupled coils, voltage and the current transformer, mutual induction, impedance transformation, current direction, voltage polarity and the mode of winding, polar diagrams, resonance, and Zobel networks. The publication examines networks containing switches, complex frequency, and Fourier series. Considerations include frequency spectrum, finite Fourier series, capacitor discharges over a resistor, natural oscillations, and discontinuity. The monograph is a valuable source of information for electricians and researchers interested in electrical networks.
