    Description

    The exciting new sixth edition of Electric Machinery has been extensively updated while retaining the emphasis on fundamental principles and physical understanding that has been the outstanding feature of this classic book. This book covers fundamental concepts in detail as well as advanced topics for readers who wish to cover the material in more depth. Several new chapters have been added, including a chapter on power electronics, as well as one on speed and torque control of dc and ac motors. This edition has also been expanded with additional examples and practice problems. The use of MATLAB has been introduced to the new edition, both in examples within the text as well as in the chapter problems. Key features Each chapter includes quantitative examples to illustrate important concepts. Practice problems with solutions accompany many of the examples for further reinforcement. These features have been clearly illuminated through the design to make it easy for the reader to locate them. A new chapter on power electronics introduces the basic components of power electronics as well as typical circuit configurations for rectification and inversion that are found in modern motor drives. A new chapter on speed and torque control of dc and ac motors has also been added. This chapter introduces the basic concepts of motor drives for dc and ac machines and includes a discussion of the technique of field-oriented control, which is widely used in modern drive systems. The chapter on single- and two-phase motors now includes a generalized analytical formulation for unsymmetrical two-phase induction machines. This formulation is then applied to the general case of a single-phase induction motor running off both its main and auxiliary winding. This formulation is unique to Electric Machinery and is not found in other text books. The popular interactive computer software MATLAB has been introduced in the new edition in both examples and practice problems. In addition, chapter problems have been added which specifically require the use of MATLAB. An icon has been placed in the margin to indicate those places where MATLAB is used. A website for this book includes a download able version of the solutions manual, password-protected for instructors. The website will also serve as a source for additional examples, problems and MATLAB examples. It will also contain a set of Power Point slides of figures from the book for instructors to use in their lectures.

    bible of electrical machines

    nothing can be best than this.......... i was a very poor student... continuous 2 backlogs in machines ... but in my last chance of supplementary after studying from this book.. i topped in the exam... my story explains all about the book... just buy it without any doubt.

    Collectors item

    In present times,this book is nothing but a collector's item.it may have been well when it was written years ago and less textbooks on the subject were available.
    Books like MG Say,Hancock-Clayton easily surpass this as the best textbook in the realm of electrical machines.
    Unless you want to own it just for historical reasons,dont go for it.
    ps:I dont know how MIT still asks its students to follow this book for the course.

    One of few best books i have read in machinery

    This is a great book and has the potential to make a student really understand how a transformer,AC machines and DC machines work. The other book i recommend is 'Electric machinery fundamentals by chapman' which be sompler to read. Read both books for a better perspective since both the authours are knowledgable and present the subject in their unique way.

    A must read for Electrical Engineers.

    To start with a very well written book. The language is crystal clear and and evokes the correct principles in the reader's mind. The book covers almost everything related to machines.
    What I like the most about the book is that it depth goes in full depth of the topic. This creates a lasting image in the reader's mind, and this is where the book stands out. The book simply makes study of machines - a journey.

    Superb book

    Read this book if you want to get some insight on electric machines in addition to information. Synchronous machine treatment is awesome, especially the analysis with d q variables. Rotating magnetic field concept well explained. Though this is a foreign author book, the material is very accessible and can be easily learnt that many other books.

    Definitely go for it to Clear your basics , But Topics are left for Exam point of veiw(IES,GATE tec)

    If you are a beginner than Definitely go for it, the language is simple and easy. it will clear your basics. But this will not be your last book, because as far as the IES(ESE) or other competitive exams(like GATE) are concerns the Syllabus is NOT complete. Things like 3phase Transformer, starting of DC and Induction motor, parallel operation of Transformer, efficiency and regulation, testing etc are NOT covered. So you have to other books to cover these left topics. But this book is good as ...
