Electric Drives, Second Edition
: In stock
: CRC PRESS
Electric drives are everywhere, and with the looming promise of electric vehicles and renewable energy, they will become more complex and the demands on their capabilities will continue to increase. To keep up with these trends, students require hands-on knowledge and a keen understanding of the subtleties involved in the operation of modern electric drives. The best-selling first edition of Electric Drives provided such an understanding, and this Second Edition offers the same approach with up-to-date coverage of all major types of electric drives, both constant and variable speed.
This book provides a self-contained treatment of low-, medium-, and large-power drives illustrated by numerous application examples, problems, digital simulation results, and test results for both steady state and dynamic operation. This edition features updated material in every chapter, including references; new material on AC brush series motors, capacitor-split inductor motors, single-phase PMSMs and switched reluctance motors, and tooth-wound PMSMs, all with numerical examples; new case studies on AC synchronous and induction motors; and a new chapter on control of electric generators. The companion CD-ROM features the full text, class slides for instructors, and MATLAB® simulations of 10 closed-loop drives, two of which are new to this edition.
With a practical, hands-on approach, Electric Drives, Second Edition is the ideal textbook to help students design, simulate, build, and test modern electric drives, from simple to complex.
