Written for non-specialist users of electric motors and drives, this book explains how electric drives work and compares the performance of the main systems, with many examples of applications. The author's approach - using a minimum of mathematics - has made this book equally popular as an outline for professionals and an introductory student text. * First edition (1990) has sold over 6000 copies. Drives and Controls on the first edition: 'This book is very readable, up-to-date and should be extremely useful to both users and o.e.m. designers. I unhesitatingly recommend it to any busy engineer who needs to make informed judgements about selecting the right drive system.' New features of the second edition: * New section on the cycloconverter drive. * More on switched relectance motor drives. * More on vector-controlled induction motor drives. * More on power switching devices. * New 'question and answer' sections on common problems and misconceptions. * Updating throughout. Electric Motors and Drives is for non-specialist users of electric motors and drives. It fills the gap between specialist textbooks (which are pitched at a level which is too academic for the average user) and the more prosaic 'handbooks' which are filled with useful detail but provide little opportunity for the development of any real insight or understanding. The book explores most of the widely-used modern types of motor and drive, including conventional and brushless d.c., induction motors (mains and inverter-fed), stepping motors, synchronous motors (mains and converter-fed) and reluctance motors.

Preface The Electrical Engineer's Reference Book was first published in 1945: its original aims, to reflect the state of the art in electrical science and technology, have been kept in view throughout the succeeding decades during which subsequent editions have appeared at regular intervals. Publication of a new edition gives the opportunity to respond to many of the changes occurring in the practice of electrical engineering, reflecting not only the current commercial and environmental concerns of society, but also industrial practice and experience plus academic insights into fundamentals. For this 16th edition, thirtynine chapters are either new, have been extensively rewritten, or augmented and updated with new material. As in earlier editions this wide range of material is brought within the scope of a single volume. To maintain the overall length within the possible bounds some of the older material has been deleted to make way for new text. The organisation of the book has been recast in the following format with the aim of facilitating quick access to information. General Principles (Chapters 1±3) covers basic scientific background material relevant to electrical engineering. It includes chapters on units, mathematics and physical quantities, electrotechnology and network analysis. Materials & Processes (Chapters 4±10) describes the fundamentals and range of materials encountered in electrical engineering in terms of their electromechanical, thermoelectric and electromagnetic properties. Included are chapters on the fundamental properties of materials, conductors and superconductors, semiconductors, insulation, magnetic materials, electroheat and materials processing and welding and soldering. Control (Chapters 11±16) is a largely new section with six chapters on electrical measurement and instruments, industrial instrumentation for process control, classical control systems theory, fundamentals of digital control, microprocessors and programmable controllers. Power Electronics and Drives (Chapters 17±20) reflect the significance of upto 50% of all electrical power passing through semiconductor conversion. The subjects included of greatest importance to industry, particularly those related to the area of electrical variable speed drives, comprise power semiconductor devices, electronic power conversion, electrical machine drives, motors and actuators. Environment (Chapters 21±25) is a new section of particular relevance to current concerns in this area including lighting, environmental control, electromagnetic compatibility, health and safety, and hazardous area technology. Power Generation (Chapters 26±29) sees some rationalisation of contributions to previous editions in the largely mechanical engineering area of prime movers, but with an expanded treatment of the increasingly important topic of alternative energy sources, along with further chapters on alternating current generators and batteries. Transmission and Distribution (Chapters 30±38) is concerned with the methods and equipment involved in the delivery of electric power from the generator to the consumer. It deals with overhead lines, cables, HVDC transmission, power transformers, switchgear, protection, and optical fibres in power systems and aspects of installation with an additional chapter on the nature of electromagnetic transients. Power Systems (Chapters 39±43) gathers together those topics concerned with present day power system planning and power system operation and control, together with aspects of related reactive power plant and FACTS controllers. Chapters are included on electricity economics and trading in the liberalised electricity supply industry now existing in many countries, plus an analysis of the power supply quality necessary for modern industrialised nations. Sectors ofElectricity Use (Chapters 44±49) is a concluding section comprising chapters on the special requirements of agriculture and horticulture, roads, railways, ships, aircraft, and mining with a final chapter providing a preliminary guide to Standards and Certification. Although every effort has been made to cover the scope of electrical engineering, the nature of the subject and the manner in which it is evolving makes it inevitable that improvements and additions are possible and desirable. In order to ensure that the reference information provided remains accurate and relevant, communications from professional engineers are invited and all are given careful consideration in the revision and preparation of new editions of the book. The expert contributions made by all the authors involved and their patience through the editorial process is gratefully acknowledged. M. A. Laughton D. F.

This book provides a comprehensive practical treatment of the modelling of electrical power systems, and the theory and practice of fault analysis of power systems covering detailed and advanced theories as well as modern industry practices. The continuity and quality of electricity delivered safely and economically by today’s and future’s electrical power networks are important for both developed and developing economies. The correct modelling of power system equipment and correct fault analysis of electrical networks are pre-requisite to ensuring safety and they play a critical role in the identification of economic network investments. Environmental and economic factors require engineers to maximise the use of existing assets which in turn require accurate modelling and analysis techniques. The technology described in this book will always be required for the safe and economic design and operation of electrical power systems. The book describes relevant advances in industry such as in the areas of international standards developments, emerging new generation technologies such as wind turbine generators, fault current limiters, multi-phase fault analysis, measurement of equipment parameters, probabilistic short-circuit analysis and electrical interference. *A fully up-to-date guide to the analysis and practical troubleshooting of short-circuit faults in electricity utilities and industrial power systems *Covers generators, transformers, substations, overhead power lines and industrial systems with a focus on best-practice techniques, safety issues, power system planning and economics *North American and British / European standards covered
