This text contains sufficient material for a single semester core course in electric machines and energy conversion, while allowing some selectivity among the topics covered by the latter sections of Chapters 3-7 depending on a school's curriculum. The text can work for either a course in energy design principles and analysis with an optional design project, or for a capstone design course that follows an introductory course in energy device principles.
A unique feature of "Electric Machines: Analysis and Design Applying MATLAB" is its integration of the popular interactive computer software MATLAB to handle the tedious calculations arising in electric machine analysis. As a result, more exact models of devices can be retained for analysis rather than the approximate models commonly introduced for the sake of computational simplicity.

Through the use of the developed computer software for each energy conversion device, the reader is able to quickly calculate and plot wide range performance data. The impact of parameter sensitivity can also be easily assessed. In some cases, instantaneous voltage and current waveforms are generated to give an "oscilloscope study."
Another unique feature of the book is the coverage of the energy conversion equipment's basic design principles after learning about its performance analysis in chapters 4-7. The scope and depth of these design methodologies are sufficient to train engineering students in the mind set of design. The reference list at the end of each chapter serves as a beginning point for the reader to pursue additional design refinement.
Chapters 4-7 each contain problems formulated to drill the reader on the individual concepts of design as each is introduced. A completed design example in each chapter serves as coagulant for the principles that are taught.
An expanded Web site for the book includes a downloadable version of the solutions manual and the MATLAB M-files.
