Matrix Analysis of Electrical Machinery, Second Edition is a 14-chapter edition that covers the systematic analysis of electrical machinery performance. This edition discusses the principles of various mathematical operations and their application to electrical machinery performance calculations. The introductory chapters deal with the matrix representation of algebraic equations and their application to static electrical networks. The following chapters describe the fundamentals of different transformers and rotating machines and present torque analysis in terms of the currents based on the principle of the conservation of energy. A chapter focuses on a number of linear transformations commonly used in machine analysis. This edition also describes the performance of other electrical machineries, such as direct current, single-phase and polyphase commutator, and alternating current machines. The concluding chapters cover the analysis of small oscillations and other machine problems. This edition is intended for readers who have some knowledge of or are concurrently studying the physical nature of electrical machines.
