This book presents the basics of electrical engineering from the perspective of the primary principles behind the subject, rather than dwelling on superficial details. It is based on three objectives: to explain the fundamental ideas behind electrical engineering, to emphasize the unity of the subject, and to bring an understanding of the subject within the reach of all engineers. FEATURES: NEW--offersnew material on induction motor nameplate interpretation, power distribution systems, synchronous generators, and RLC circuit analysis in time domain. providesmore than 1,000 problems, many revised from the first edition. presentsclear explanations of the fundamentals of electrical engineering, focusing on the basics of the subject. maintains astrong emphasis on vocabularythroughout the book. draws relevantexamples directly from the daily life of the reader. providesmany pedagogical aids, including icons to identify recurring ideas, "what if?" problems appended to examples, objectives at the beginning of each chapter, chapter summaries, and causality diagrams.Cogdell, J. R. is the author of 'Foundations of Electrical Engineering', published 1995 under ISBN 9780130927019 and ISBN 0130927015.
